About Fairground

Roll Up, Roll Up for all the fun of the fair. Funfairs may not be as common as they once were, but this vital part of our popular heritage has a long and illustrious history and still has a role to play. Although most often found today at seaside resorts, where there is a constant flow of new customers, funfairs can still be found touring the country. Many of the old sideshows have disappeared. Menageries, boxing booths, freak shows and waxworks have largely gone from the fairground scene, but games of skill and strength such as the Coconut Shy, Hoopla, Hook A Duck and Hit The Bell have become an evocative part of our society. As have classic rides like the Waltzers, Octopus, Twist and the current favourite Miami Trip. Then there's the perennial favourites, the Dodgems, which came here from the U.S.A. in the 1920s. Many British fairgrounds are on common land with a history dating back to the Middle ages. Generally the travelling funfairs are a collaboration between various showmen families who have a tight knit sense of community and even their own language, called Parlyaree. Since 1889 U.K. fairgrounds have been under the control of The Showmen's Guild of Great Britain, a trade association for those who work in this unusual business. Membership is largely based on heredity, as the showmen traditions and businesses tend to be passed down in families. Today, however, a new kind of showman is appearing. These are enthusiasts who have loved the traditional funfair since childhood and have become historians of the trade and collectors of the associated memorabilia. A surprising amount of actual fairground items can be found for sale ranging from hand painted signs and boards to the gaudy yet gorgeous display lights. Even original merry-go-round horses and dodgems can be found, as well as scale models of such delights. The fairground collectables scene will surely help to ensure the longevity of the fairground.
