Chumleigh Old Fair

Start date: July 23, 2019

End date: July 27, 2019

Location: In and around Chumleigh

Non-Club Event

Chulmleigh Old Fair is an ancient tradition that has taken place since King Henry III granted a Royal Charter to the town in 1253. The fair even continued during the darkest days of the two world wars.

It always begins at 6.30pm on the Tuesday evening following 22nd July with a service in the local Parish Church, followed by the raising of the glove at the town hall, the crowning of the fair queen and the traditional money scramble for the children. The fair ends at midnight on the following Saturday when the glove is taken down.

On the Wednesday there is the traditional country and craft market held in the streets of Chulmleigh, there are also events over at the cricket field including a sheep show, dog show, vintage vehicles and a flower show. During the week there are also many other events including ‘Spot the Oddity’ in the shop windows of Chulmleigh, Treasure Trails and various sporting competitions to name a few. It’s worth picking up a programme of events from one of the local shops or library to find out exactly what is on each day.

Chulmleigh Old Fair is run by a committee of volunteers, with any profits used to keep admission prices to events to a minimum and also to provide generous money prizes to those taking part in the events and competitions. Many events are FREE!
