It’s full steam ahead for a fantastic family day out at the Dacorum Steam and Country Fayre, taking place on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st July in the 62-acre showground of Green Croft Farm, Potten End, HP1 2SG.
There’s a packed line-up, with something to appeal to young and old, from heavy horses, blacksmithing and birds of prey displays to glass blowing, archery, restored cars, vintage tractors and a display of commercial fire and military vehicles - all in aid of The Hospice of St Francis.
There will be live music and lots for children to enjoy too, including circus skills, Thomas the Tank Engine rides, and the chance to explore Dennis the fire engine, plus a huge variety of sideshows.
Organisers, The Dacorum Machinery and Steam Preservation Group, have donated over £125k to the Berkhamsted-based Hospice of St Francis since the event began nine years ago. The fundraising helps the Hospice to continue to provide its special care for people in Herts and Bucks facing life-limiting illness.
Andrea Grant, Community Fundraiser at the Hospice, said: “The Dacorum Steam and Country Fayre is always a highlight of the Hospice’s community fundraising calendar; the support from the local people who enjoy this nostalgic weekend is always incredible and the money raised year-on-year at the event is crucial to supporting our care.”
Entry costs £8 for adults, £5 for Children/concessions or £20 for a family ticket. Free parking with tractor/trailer rides from car park to show entrance. The show will be open from 10am-5pm on both days, with the official opening on Saturday at 2pm.
