History of the Summer Fair

Buckland Monachorum’s Summer Fair is traditionally held on the second Saturday in June and for many years was known as the June Fair although the event seems to have developed from an older Village event known as the May Revels. At one time the Fair was held in the grounds of Pound House but it then moved to the grounds of the village primary school. Following the success of the Big Lunch in 2012, (which was held in the main street of the Village) it was decided to move the Fair into the Village for 2013 and to rename it the ‘Summer Fair’. The profits from the day are shared by the organisations that help put on the Fair.

If events allow, the Summer Fair will be on the 10th June 2022.
