Overton Sheepfair
A village carnival like no other!

Thank you to everyone who came along and helped to make our 2016 Swinging Sixties Sheepfair such a success. We are now working towards 2020! Keep an eye on our blog page and Facebook or Twitter for news!

The Sheepfair was originally conceived to celebrate the millennium in 2000 as Overton had been the site for Sheepfairs from medieval times until early in the twentieth century. The original reincarnation of the Sheepfair in 2000 carried a medieval theme which was embraced by the village. Every four years since, the village has joined together and transformed itself to capture each Sheepfair’s theme. In honour of its roots, every Sheepfair is officially opened with the arrival of sheep being herded along Winchester Street – they mostly all behave!
The event is organised by a dedicated committee whose motto is:
By the Village, for the Village
The Sheepfair Committee prides itself on the wonderful array of entertainment offered across the weekend. With three stages, a fairground, street entertainment, bands, community entertainers, joint church services, market stalls and exhibitions, it really is a jam-packed weekend of entertainment for all the family.

We would love to include your 2016 memories into the website to celebrate the weekend. Send us as much video footage as you can. If we get enough we will put them all together into a fun montage!
