Entrance Tickets


Show admission tickets for the public are available either on an advance basis (pre-paid) or by paying “on the day” at the Pay Gates. We encourage visitors to take advantage of our pre-paid booking scheme as this gives discounts on all prices on bookings made before 12th August 2018.  Why not take advantage of the great savings with our 5 day, 4 day and 3 day pre-paid tickets.
Changes have been made to simplify the pass system for the 2018 Event, from this year ALL Pre-Paid Tickets will be sent out electronically for you to print out at home, as E-Tickets. 3 Day, 4 Day and 5 Day E-Tickets will be exchanged for wristbands onsite. Customers will receive their email confirmations and in due course will receive their admission tickets/passes electronically.
Pre-paid bookings can be made by ordering on-line through this website, by debit card/credit card from our telephone hotline (01258 860361) or by post (by cheque) to Great Dorset Steam Fair, Dairy House Farm, Child Okeford, Blandford Forum, Dorset, DT11 8HT.
Please note we charge one booking fee of £2 per transaction irrespective to the number of tickets booked.
Pre-paid tickets can also be purchased from over 20 Tourist Information Centers in towns across our region, please see the full list at the bottom of this page.
