Roll up, roll up and enjoy all the fun of the fair

  • Fairground Ride

Loughborough will experience all the fun of the fair as the four-day event rolls into town on Wednesday November 8, 2017. 

Loughborough Fair is back for its 796th year, bringing attractions for all the family to enjoy.

There will be around 20 massive rides that will take over the town centre, along with smaller attractions and stalls.

The historic fair is organised by Charnwood Borough Council and attracts thousands of families every year.

Rides will include fairground classics such as the Waltzers and Dodgems, while thrill- seekers can try bigger attractions including the Dominator and Extreme Ride.

Younger fair-goers can also enjoy Kiddies’ Corner.

Sylvia Wright, Charnwood Borough Council’s Head of Leisure and Culture said: “The fair is such an important event for the town. It’s a great chance for families and friends to get together and have a really enjoyable time.

“It’s also great to see the fair attracting many new visitors to Loughborough thanks to its reputation as one of the largest street fairs in the county.

“We’re all looking forward to this year’s event and we hope residents and visitors enjoy all it has to offer, we’re very proud of our town centre and it is a great opportunity to show off how fabulous it is.”
