Ditchling Fair Maypole

With seven weeks to go, we’re sad that we have to postpone the 2020 Ditchling Fair.

We have closely monitored government advice, in the hope that should we have come out of the current situation in early June, the whole village could unite in an amazing celebration.

It’s clear this is now unachievable. However, all is not lost. When we can safely come together once more, we will celebrate with the mother of all parties. We don’t know what that looks like yet but it will be vaguely fair-shaped.

Thank you for your understanding.

Please stay safe.

Keep Coming Back

About Ditchling Fair

In 1312 King Edward II granted John de Warenne, Lord of the Manor, the right to run a Fair in Ditchling 'in the eve and in the day and in the morrow of St Margaret the Virgin' and thus was to be celebrated on July 20th.
