Kimbolton Country Fayre is now in it’s 26th glorious year, a spectacular charity event for the whole family, organised by volunteers from The Rotary Club of Kimbolton Castle and The Sporting Bears Motor Club. It is held in the beautiful grounds of Kimbolton Castle in Cambridgeshire, the home of Kimbolton School which has generously supported this event for many years.
In 2016 the 25th Kimbolton Country Fayre and Classic Car show organised by the Rotary Club of Kimbolton Castle in partnership with the Sporting Bears was by any measure a great success. Over 5,000 visitors enjoyed a spectacular array of entertainment and activities including Camel Racing, the Sealed Knot, the Galaxy Swing Band, the Lindy Hoppers and of course over 900 Classic cars.
In total £18000 was raised for a range of charities including Burns Camp, Samuel Pepys School, HemiHelp, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, Ellesmere Opportunity Group, Autism Concern, Holly Ward (Hinchinbrooke Hospital), Mission Motor Sports and several other Rotary supported charities.
New this year were model car racing and the Twinwoods Adventure Race room’s Ford Focus simulator and Knowles Dairy (a unique display of vintage dairy from 1940’s to the 1960’s).
Dream rides were more popular than ever and a flyby of a Hurricane from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight fully met expectations.
The Fayre was opened by Sir Hugh Duberly, Lord Lieutenant for Cambridgeshire and attended by both the current and last years Rotary District Governors.
The Fayre has raised over £360,000 over the last 25 years. Staffed by over 60 volunteers on the day and backed by a year of planning.
The 2017 Fayre will again have a fantastic line up of show ring events, stalls and entertainment as well as the usual tea tent, real ale bar, classic cars on display, plus many more attractions and activities for the whole family.
The 2017 fayre will be held on the 9th of July, gates open for general admission at 11.00am. Classic cars for display arrive from 9.00am.
