What's On

The Parade

One of the highlights of the Sheepfair is the Parade featuring the emergency services, classic and vintage vehicles, a marching band, floats and walking groups.

Everyone is invited to take part, whether you are on your own, with family or friends, a business or community group. Entry is free, all we ask is that everyone is in costume which can be based on our theme of 'The Roaring Twenties' or something else of your choice.

The procession leaves Sapley Lane Playing Field at 4pm on Saturday 18th July 2020 and will finish at the ORC ground in Bridge Street.

Some ideas for your theme might include Mickey Mouse, The Great Gatsby, Art Deco, Radio, Bugsy Malone, The Jazz Singer, The discovery of penicillin by Alexander Fleming, Agatha Christie or even Clarence Birdseye.

For more information, or to register your interest, please email parade@overtonsheepfair.co.uk

Please note that health and safety information will be issued nearer the date and that all monies collected during the Parade are to be submitted to the Sheepfair Committee.
