Vintage Video from early 1990's on Sale on ebay
I have a number of VHS videos for sale of various fairs. Most of them appear on ebay, so go to ebay and search "Fairground Video".
None of them feature West Country firms, I'm afraid.
No Liskeard Fair
This weekend gone (ending the 29th Sept) should have seen a unfair to accompany the St Mathews feast.
However,owing tothe way the dates have fallen, it was not possible for A&R to do it this year.
Rowlands 12-16th June - and the plan for the rest of the month.
Caught up with Shane Rowland this evening and Rowlands are open at St Ives from 12th to 16th. Surprisngly(as Berkshire and much ofthe South was flooded this morning), Shane tells me that the weather is lovely. From here, expect further activity in support of Mazey Day on the 23rd June in Penzance and then off to Newquay until the end of June.
the photo shows David Rowlands fair at Pinhoe (Exter) photographed in March 2012.
On this weekend to the 9th June 2012.
Usually a good selection of vintage amusements. unfortunately it has been very damp there on Friday and Thursday was a wash-out, but the forecast for Saturday is good.
