Fun at the Fair Posted On 20 August 2021

Funfair to return to Stamford


After disappointment earlier this year when the Mid-Lent Fair was cancelled for a second year in a row in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus. The fair, which is the largest street fair in Lincolnshire, is a much looked forward to event for residents. Councillor Rosemary Trollope-Bellew, South Kesteven District Council cabinet member for culture and visitor economy, spoke to the Rutland and Stamford Mercury, explaining: “SKDC and the Showmen’s Guild of Great Britain, which organises the events, have jointly taken the decision to cancel both this year’s Mid-Lent fairs as, under the current circumstances, the safety of all our residents must come first.”

With restrictions easing and our society beginning to return to normal, the fair is coming to Stamford once again! Woods Funfairs are setting up stall at the Recreating Ground for five days of fun. Rides open each day at 1:30pm from Wednesday August 18th until Sunday August 22nd. Manager of Woods Funfairs, Ashley Wood, explains: “We usually come to Stamford in October, but we’ve agreed with the council to trial a summer fair this year. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone.”

Woods Funfairs has always been a family affair, established by William Wood over 30 years ago. Woods Funfairs boasts over five generations in the UK fairground ride industry. Woods Funfairs offers large thrill rides, children’s rides, catering units and side stalls. Make the most of the returning fun and head to Stamford Recreation Ground this weekend to ensure that this summer fair trial is a success!

If you catch the funfair bug and want to inject a little more thrill seeking into your life, Woods Funfairs offers hire of all their thrill rides, stalls and children’s rides. So, whatever event you’re planning, you can bring a little bit of the fair to you!
