If you’re busy during the day, why not come along and experience the spectacle of the Great Dorset Steam Fair by night, with reduced evening prices after 5pm
As night falls, the fair transforms into a wonderland of light and sound, as over 60 Showmen’s Engines begin generating power for the “Old Time” steam funfair rides, including Gallopers, Steam Yachts, Chair-O-Planes, Noah’s Ark, Skid, Cakewalk, Big Wheel and a Light House Slip.
There are even authentic re-creations of Victorian and 1920s variety shows, fronting the large fairground organs. It all makes for the most phantasmagorical marvel, and one that is widely recognised as unique in steam preservation circles.
