Countdown to the British Family Fayre 2015

Back for the 3rd year, the British Family Fayre is now less than 2 weeks away (

It was touch and go, following last years event, whether we would  put on the British family Fayre again. The first 2 years were undoubtedly a remarkable feat for a simple family like us to achieve – national media headlines, 5,000+ visitors each year, a stage full of acts, charity auctions and a lot more.  We are very proud of it all, but the level of pressure it placed on us was frankly untenable.

Oddly, the British Family Fayre this year is likely to double the number of visitors and has significantly more attractions but for us it has been considerably less stressful. This is all down to our partnership with the Historic Chatham Dockyard and their ‘Salute to the 40’s’ event.  Thankfully joining this existing, extremely popular, event has taken much of the logistical and organisation challenges out of our annual celebration. So, this year you get 2 great shows on one of Britain’s most iconic sites (and we get to preserve our marriage). To us this sounds like a win for everyone.

However, this is all very easy for us to complain about the resources needed to put on a show of this scale. Most of the effort this year has been undertaken by the guys at Lincoln West.  For 3 years they have worked with us to put on this celebration of British Manufacturing (and have never earned a penny for it). They truly are wonderful people!

The British Family Fayre 2015 is shaping up to be an exciting event, even more jam-packed with family fun than ever before. We look forward to seeing you there.

James & Emily Bradshaw

NOTE:  I suspect that if you were looking to book in as a business you might be too late… however give Lincoln West a call just in case. Tell them we sent you and they might be able to fit you in. 😉


  1. Well Done James and I wish you a successful and enjoyable event. Chillchaser will be at the Scottish Home Show on 25-27th therefore we can’t be there but all the best. Eddie Middleton
