As with all recent Staple Country Fayres, the intention for our next Fayre is for it to be as fresh and exciting as possible.  So the 2024 Fayre will be a great mixture of old and new attractions!   If it's popular - it's been left in.  And if it's new and exciting - it's being tried.

Thanet Classics.

This ever-popular classic car club will be back - displaying their classic vehicles, and providing us with some arena entertainment.



East Kent Classic Motorcycle Club will once again be providing visitors with a fascinating collection of motorcycles.


Magic Al and his crew are now a Staple Country Fayre permanent Fixture!  Juggle-it-All provide a magic show in the afternoon - but their involvement goes much further:  For the entire day, they mingle with the fayregoers, juggling, stilt-walking, performing their magic, and making / handing out balloon creations to the delighted little ones.

For the 2023 event, Juggle-it-All moved their Magic Show into the Arena.  And this worked very well, so we're doing it again in 2024.

At the last six fayres we have kicked off the event with live music; and it's worked brilliantly.  In 2016 we had Hotsy Totsy, in 2017 we had Bamboozle, and in 2018/19/22/23 we had The Southern Cruisers.


From the feedback we've received, it was pretty obvious that you wanted The Southern Cruisers back again for the next Fayre.   So we've listended - and have booked them.


Having made such an effort to keep everything as professional as possible - we thought we'd apply the same principle to our Fayre's Face painitng. So for the last few fayres, we've used the services of a professional Face Painter. And we'll be doing the same for the 2024 Fayre. This time around it'll be Shelby James. 

Along with Candy Floss,  Ice Creams and Magic Shows; Face Painting is an essential part of making the event appealing to children.  


Always very popular with our younger visitors - Traditional Fairground Rides will once again be making an appearance:  Safe  / Good Fun - and like all the Fayre's attractions, very reasonably priced!

Display Of Military Vehicles.

What better sight to meet Fayre-goers (and prevent rogue parking!) - than a row of fascinating old military vehicles!

In recent years, instead of being squeezed in between the vintage tractors and the craft stalls, the Military Vehicles have had their own premium spot:  On the borders of the Fayre's entrance road. This location proved very popular - so we're doing it again for the the 2024 Fayre.

It's pointless shopping around once you'e already found the best!

So once again the collection of Military vehicles is Courtesy of Georgie Martin.

It's no use saying 'look out for them' - as you can't miss them - especially as one is a tank!
