Added to the other attractions at Folly farm, the fairground buildings contain the largest traditional 'old-time' fairground housed under cover in Europe. Here, young and 'young at heart' can still enjoy rides and games that date from the 1920s to the 1950s. Everything has been visually and mechanically restored in the traditional styles of those earlier years but also updated to operate to modern health and safety standards.

This souvenir booklet gives background information about fairs, including their 19th century roles as occasions for hiring farm workers and house-servants, plus stunning photos and descriptions of the fairground attractions at Folly farm. It complements any visit to the unique collection and recalls children and parents enjoying the fun, which is what a fair is all about.

Condition: Very good.
