The next Sheepfair will in July 2020. 
Entry to the Sheepfair is free due to generous donations (in previous years from De La Rue and the Overton Parish Council) and the support of our souvenir programme advertisers and stallholders. However there will be a collection during the processions on Saturday, the proceeds of which will go to local charities. So we hope you will give generously there and make sure you purchase your copy of our souvenir programme.
