Over the past two years and more, the Sheepfair committee have been making preparations for the sixth modern Sheepfair – an event which we know is loved and appreciated throughout the local community.
The event was to have been held this coming July. However, in the light of COVID-19 and of projections for the spread of the virus over the coming months, the Sheepfair Committee have reluctantly decided that we must postpone it.
In order to offer all our entertainers, stallholders, advertisers and other supporters as much clarity and certainty as possible, we have decided to defer the Roaring Twenties Sheepfair by one year. The new date for the event will be 17th & 18th July 2021.
All those who have paid us for advertising or for a pitch on Winchester Street during the event will be offered the option of a full refund or deferring to the new date.
We understand that this will cause disappointment but hope you will join us in looking forward to the re-scheduled event, hopefully in a less tumultuous year.
