Do they live in the village?
Are they 12 or over and know they’re being nominated?

If the answer to all of the above is yes, then we would love to hear from you* in order that the whole Village can thank them in style at the 2018 fair!

In 2016 we wanted to change the way we chose our Fair Queen. Instead of the old beauty pageant style selection process where people would put themselves forward for voting, we decided to change it to a nomination process where candidates were nominated based on good deeds and as role models for our community. We will continue this new tradition for the 2018 fair.

*Nb In submitting this application you accept that this is not a guarantee that the nomination will be approved by the Ditchling Fair Committee. It is hoped that all successful nominations will be notified in early May.

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.
