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.
If you are visiting the village then there is some parking available at Sapley Lane playing fields (will be locked overnight between 9pm and 7.30am) and Overton Hill. Full details will be confirmed closer to the next Sheepfair
We would recommend you use the handy public transport links if possible if you are travelling to Overton.
Lots of people like to embrace the Sheepfair theme. Take a look at the pictures from 2016’s Swinging Sixties event. At previous Sheepfairs the commitment of the village to take part is what makes the event really special. There are prizes for best costumes across the weekend.
