ALL THE FUN OF HAM FAIR
Held on Ham Common every year, this traditional village fair boasts a wide variety of stalls, entertainment provided by local schools and other groups, food and drink, a play zone for children and much more.
There is a varied programme of music and dancing provided by professional musicians and local schools. Sadly there will be no Dog Show in 2021, but local schools and bands will be performing; there will be a Fun Fair and an additional attraction this year of a small display of vintage vehicles.
Ham Fair provides a great day of fun and entertainment for all the family! Come along and have a great time.
Have a look at the Ham Fair Gallery to see what makes the Fair such fun.

The entries to the competitions will be on display in the Craft Marquee.
