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. Please do give us your feedback by clicking here to complete a short survey.

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

Send us your video clips/pictures!

We would love to include your 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!

Send all pictures and video clips to media@overtonsheepfair.co.uk
