The return of the Poyntington May Fair


The village of Poyntington is roughly two miles north of Sherborne. This year, the village’s annual May Fair will be on the 18th of May, from 10am to 4pm – entry is completely free, and there’s plenty of car parking.
It will be held in the grounds of the historic and beautiful Poyntington Manor House, whose gardens will also be open for all to enjoy. Sir Walter Raleigh spent his last night as a free man at the manor, before being taken to the Tower of London!
The Wessex Morris Men will be dancing at 11.30am and 1pm, there will be live music from local artists, stalls selling plants, local produce and wares from local artisans, as well as refreshments and activities for children including a Book Character fancy dress competition, which will be judged at 2pm. Something for everyone!
All proceeds from the fair will be split between All Saints Church, the Weldmar Hospice and The Rendezvous charity which works with young people in the local area.
