On Saturday 17th June, Warlingham Fair celebrated its 25th anniversary with its most successful event ever.

With the help of a dedicated team of helpers and sunny weather, the fair has made record profits, which will either be reinvested in the Fair for future years or distributed to help local organisations. The full figures will be posted on-line as soon as they are fully available.

Says Warlingham Fair Chairman Jeremy Pursehouse: “We have not had all the figures in yet, but we already know it will be a record. More importantly, as well as being a financial success, judging by the large crowds on the day and the feedback we have received, it was an event that was enjoyed by everyone.

“I would like to thank all the helpers, sponsors and participants who made the day the success it was.”

The first call on our money is to ensure we have enough in our account to stage two fairs; to make sure we have enough resources to stage the event if we are unlucky enough to have a series of poor years. It takes around £6,000 to stage Warlingham Fair, including sound system, toilets, arena events and dozens of other costs. A main arena act costs at least £1,500.

Topping the bill at this year’s Warlingham Fair will be the Xtreme Stunt cycle and motorcycle team.

The show consists of two riders, which includes the reigning and five times world cycle trials champion Jack Carthy, who will leave your audience amazed as he exhibits his incredible riding talents.

Joining Jack in the show is Dan Clark who has wowed audiences all over the world with his motorcycle stunts and displays. With Dan on the motorbike and Jack on the peddle bike it’s a man against machine event with plenty of comedy aspects to the show.

We have seen lots of comments about rain on Saturday, so let's get this clear. All the forecasts are saying possible showers and possible bursts of heavy rain. The key word is possible, so it may not happen. This is England, of course it might rain. It also possible we will miss the showers. The good news is that we have had a run of dry weather recently, so the ground is dry and hard, and there is plenty of shelter on-site if needed. So, bring a waterproof, bring sun cream, bring sensible shoes, bring spending money and, most importantly, bring yourselves.
