Forde Abbey Charity Summer Fair is one of the best days out this summer. Forde Abbey is beautiful stately home that has been modifiied over the years, and has been loving cared for over the last few generations. It makes a wonderful backdrop for a brilliant Summer Fair.

There is lots to do at the Forde Abbey Charity Summer Fair, particularly animal related entertainment. Ferret racing, where ferrets are put down pipes,  then come out the other end are great fun for both ferrets and everyone else. Ferrets love it because it mimics normal behaviour, as ferrets go down rabbit holes to find food.

Dog shows include dog competitions and dog agility shows. You can bring your dog along (if well-behaved and on a lead) and they can enter the competition, too. You can even meet Twiglet, Forde Abbey’s lovely Shetland pony.

You might prefer to look at vintage cars and engines, and if you head for the lake you will see model boats. Also, fly fishing tuition is available.

No Summer Fair would be complete without live music, and so there will be musical entertainment all day. Foodies everywhere will be thrilled with the plethora of street traders selling food of all types and flavours. There is a farmers’ market and food avenue, plus 60 stalls in a shopping village which sell food items and craft gifts.


Since all proceeds go to charity, this is a worthwhile cause to get involved in. Not just that it’s great fun, too! Two great reasons to visit this year!
