Fairground Organs


The instruments that you will see at the show are mainly fairground organs which were originally built up inside the various fairground rides of the early 1900’s. You will see instruments of all sizes around the site with some of the largest putting on shows to entertain you as you walk around the showground. All in all, the Great Dorset Steam Fair has the largest collection of organs gathered in one place, it most certainly is the biggest gathering in the World at any one time – a collection of over 40 in all! While you take in the music remember that you will be listening to live music from a time that most of the planet has long forgotten!
