Kimbolton Country Fayre is now in it’s 28th year, a charity event for the whole family, organised by volunteers from The Rotary Club of Kimbolton Castle and The Sporting Bears Motor Club.

It is held in the beautiful grounds of Kimbolton Castle in Cambridgeshire, the home of Kimbolton School.

In 2018 we were delighted to host the following to meet wide tastes.

 

Main Ring events: Savage Skills: Free Stay Mountain Bike Stunt Team, Sealed Knot, Beagles and Heavy Horses.

 

Stage: Haka, Gavin James Burke – Classical and Musical Theatre Vocalist, Galaxy Big Band and Lindyhop Dancers, Morris Dancers

 

Children: Millers Ark Mobile Farm, Mobile Cave and Bungee Trampolining.

 

Other attractions:  Around 1000 Classic and Sports Cars, a flypast by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, more than 70 stalls and stands, Dream rides, Model Car racing as well as the usual tea tent, real ale bar plus many more attractions and activities for the whole family.  

 

In total just under £20 000 was raised for a range of Rotary supported charities.  Over the years we have supported many charities, often local; including Burns Camp, Samuel Pepys School, HemiHelp, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, Ellesmere Opportunity Group, Holly Ward (Hinchinbrooke Hospital), Mission Motor Sports and many other Rotary supported charities and good causes.

 

The Fayre has raised £400,000 over the last 27 years. Staffed by over 60 volunteers on the day and backed by a year of planning.

The 2019 fayre will be held on Sunday the 14th of July, gates open for general admission at 11.00am. Classic cars for display arrive from 9.00am.  (We can usually get in from 7am)

 

The organisers are really flexible and cars are allowed to leave early, and BBQ's etc are allowed as well as dogs.  We welcome any model not just Nissan sportscars - so anything you call your pride and joy!

 

We have extended and invite to this event to our friends in the ZClub.

 

I need to let the organisers know number by the end of April - so please can I ask for show of hands before then.  I will add some flexibility of numbers for last minute requests.  As with last year I need to obtain wrist bands which I will post out on the day.  Entrance is still £10 per car as it was last year.  

 

Last year was a very hot day - So who's attending this year?

I've never been to this and I am very keen to do this year.

Can you put me down as a highly probable until my diary shakes down?

Addec - It was mate, and the decision to have the only yellow tent of all the car clubs  - I think was a challenge with the Bugs.  They seem to home in on nissansportz :sun:

Ok guys - this is looking more like a non-go-er this year.  I need to go back to the organisers with the numbers but perhaps because of the timings next to the Silverstone Classic its not going to be viable this year.  If we can get a few more cars it may be worth it. 

 

We can perhaps do a small group in the general area as I did the first year which is still good and perhaps will be the direction this meet goes for anyone interested.  I checked Z Club and there has been no takers for this year. 

 

So I will leave this open until End of Easter and then I will have to go back to the organisers and let them know.  So any takers?

As it's so close to home for me I'm still interested in popping along. We could also put some people up to save on hotels for anyone interested in coming from further afield.

I'm still keen to attend if possible.  It looks a great meet and I've not managed to get there yet.

Ok - I will contact the organisers and let them know we are going to pull out this year.  I will ask about the 99 location for anyone who wants to make this a mini meet - that takes the pressure off trying to get numbers together.  Only fair we release our slot to another club.

I have heard back form the organisers and they have agreed to reserve a small space in the 99 Section for a few people to go to this event.  This is not going to be as big as last year and there won't be space for the Banners / Feathers etc (although I will bring a set).  But they have said we can get the cars that go together.  So At the moment I have said 3-4 cars and if others come that's great.  So anyone fancy it please let me know.  I will distribute wrist bands closer to the time.  We have one car added from Z Club.
