There is so much going on this year, we don’t know where to begin with updates! But we will give it a good go….

For your entertainment:-

You may remember a few years ago street performer Rob Roy Collins wowed the crowds at Morpeth Fair Day, well we are pleased to announce that he will be returning this year! Combining comedy, escapology and acrobatics, there will be a perfect blend of laughter, danger and excitement for you to enjoy in amazement and hysterics.

Don’t forget that the Morpeth Antiquarian Society will also be holding their annual local history exhibition in the Town Hall between 10am and 5pm on Saturday 11th  and 10am to 4.30pm on Sunday 12th June 2016, with free admission and refreshments available. Conflict and Fire includes Morpeth in the First World War; the Somme; Battle of Jutland; plus Fires of Morpeth from the great King John fire of 1216 to Oliver’s Mill.

The vintage car parade and display is also back this year – applications are available now if you would like to take part, contact us for further details.

And of course there is always the fun fair! Rides galore to thrill and delight you.

Stalls to Explore:-

We have a host of additional stalls lined up for you to explore this year, a particularly exciting charity stall is:-

Out of Sight – If you are a Robbie Williams or Dizzy Rascal fan you may remember their DVD ‘Going Crazy’, where Robbie found a new mode of transport – a ‘blinged up’ mobility scooter! The charity Out of Sight have received this mobility scooter as a donation and will be inviting Morpeth Fair Day visitors to sit on it and take pictures.

Out of Sight are working hard to raise money for a wheelchair adapted static caravan for respite care. To learn more about the charity visit their Just Giving Page here.
