Everyone’s favourite attractions will be there, including: stalls & loads of games for the kids and adults; a spectacular raffle with great prizes; a fabulous silent auction; and great food, delicious teas, and sumptuous homemade cakes.

Wootton Bassett Brass Band Confirmed|
We've confirmed Wootton Bassett brass band again this year.
Royal Wootton Bassett Brass was formed in 1980 and is a traditional brass band. It performs at civic functions in the town and in parks and other events in North Wiltshire and beyond.
Originally known as Wootton Bassett Brass the band played at the ceremony when the town was awarded its Royal Charter by Her Majesty the Queen and presented to the town by Princess Anne, The Princess Royal in 2011.
Subsequently permission was granted by the Cabinet Office for the band to assume the title Royal and the town council to use the town coat of arms.
We are very pleased to be invited to play at Tockenham once again, an event that we always enjoy.
We are pleased to announce that Lucy Lost-It will be entertaining the children this year. Packed with astounding magic, dancing, hilariously funny puppet shows, fun party games, and balloon models, you can be sure this is a party the children will be talking about for weeks to come!
Children's Fancy Dress|
There will be a Children's Fancy Dress competition for children ages 0-5, and 6-10. There will be prizes for all the children who enter, with special prizes for the winners. Plus, the fair will start with a parade of the children in fancy dress. A great way to start the fair!
Tockenham Summer Fair will be holding its annual Raffle with some great prizes!
Tickets for the grand draw will be £1 each with 5 tickets per book. As in the past few years, we will be including one raffle ticket book with the May Parish Magazine and will include details about dropping off counterfoils and cash.
The raffle both promotes the fair and delivers a valuable start to ticket sales, so please look to sell all your tickets to friends and family. If you need more books then please contact Janet Nicholls by clicking
We will be looking to make this year’s silent auction as successful as ever and would love to receive anything you feel would be valued by others. If you have any items you feel could be included please contact Michele Burke by clicking
We are hoping to have a lovely jewellery collection this year, so if you have anything like this, please let Michele know.
Classic Car Display
Always a popular attraction.  We’re delighted that the Royal Wootton Bassett Car Club have agreed to display a selection of vintage and classic cars this year.  For the young, it’s an opportunity to see some vintage cars for the first time, and for the the oldies, maybe you owned one, or always wanted one! There will be lots of photo opportunities and the owners will be on-hand to answer any questions you may have.
