Dave Hunt from Worthing will be bringing his set of Dodgem cars to Hollycombe for the Fairground Weekend on 21st-22nd July. The Dodgems will stay at Hollycombe as an extra attraction until August Bank Holiday Monday.
As this is an 'extra', a charge of £2.00 per car will apply, payable on the ride.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to enoy this ever-popular ride in Hollycombe's unique setting.
Latest news is that the new centre pole for the Razzle Dazzle will soon be back at Hollycombe and the process of installation and then building up the ride can begin.
We are really looking forward to having the ride back after 18 months out of service and with luck it will be up and running during June. However, this will depend on a lot of hard work by our engineers and volunteers. Fancy joining us? We always need new volunteers and this could be a great way to start!
Hollycombe's 'Fairground at Night' Saturday evenings are keenly looked forward to by everyone and the 2011 season is here at last!
Held from 17th September to 22nd October, between 7 & 10pm, the steam fair comes alive with all the lights on and the smell, sights and sounds of the steam engines that drive the fair in these dark autumn evenings. This really is a magical experience not to be missed. Additionally, the train crew will endeavour to run the Quarry Railway, again a magical experience in the dark! The cafe will be serving its usual excellent fayre and you can pick up those early Christmas presents in the Gift Shop.
The last two evenings - 15th & 22nd October - are Halloween themed in a light-hearted way, so why not dress up and add to the not-too-scary atmosphere. Don't forget, the emphasis is on fun!
Do come along and enjoy the unique atmosphere of what fairgrounds were like 100 years ago. You won't find it anywhere else!
• Please note: There is no need to purchase tickets in advance; in fact, we do not sell advance tickets, only tickets on the night.
A visit to the Wall of Death fulfills the need for excitement, satisfies a lust for danger. The spectacle of ever present danger, bravado coupled with the inevitable anticipation that something may go wrong as the artists cling to their machines, steering them with their feet, sitting sideways, backwards and forwards breaking down the forces of gravity.
Please note there will be a small additional charge to watch this attraction.
Hollycombe's Fairground Weekend will feature a 1934 Orton & Spooner Speedway Ark, a children's juvenile ark roundabout and a juvenile dobby horse roundabout.
The weekend of 23rd and 24th July will play host to Hollycombe's Fairground Weekend. With visiting steam engines and fairground rides for just this weekend, this is an event not to be missed.
