Carter's Steam Fair 23rd-24th Sept 2006

Carters Steam Fair travels around London and the South East, for seven months of the year. The other five months are spent in a frenzy of restoration, painting and repairing. Some of the family have even been known to wander into the shed on Christmas Day just to finish some work off!!!

Carters is the result of John Carters passion for collecting old and interesting items, discarded by the owners, as being too unfashionable or too derelict to preserve. Over the last thirty years a whole funfair has been collected, complete with historic vehicles to transport it from site to site, with vintage living vans to complement the show. Jonathan Ross described us "as more like a film set than a travelling fair".

Attractions include : Arcade : Ark : Austin cars : Chair-O-planes : Coconut sheet : Dobbies : Dodgems : Gallopers : Mirror show : Octopus : Roll-a-ball : Slip : Steam yachts : Strikers : Swingboats : Toy town : Train ride : victory dive bomber : and the Air rifle, Ball blower, Candy floss, Dart, Football, Hook-a-duck, Slug shooter stalls.
