Nunney Street Fayre 2018 is organised and promoted by a new sub-committee on behalf of the Nunney Community Association.

Nunney Street Market & Fayre has raised over £40,000 for local charities and community groups since 2010. The majority of this money benefits projects like the children’s playground, Nunney First School, village hall, Nunney Players, local heritage and community groups.

Nunney Street Market and Fayre will have over 140 stalls this year. As well as the huge number of stalls, Nunney Street Market and Fayre offers lots of food and drink for all tastes and budgets.

There will be live music in front of the castle as well as around the village. Children’s entertainers and a fairground area with bouncy castle will be available for the little ones.

Entry to Nunney Street Fayre 2018 is free. Parking costs £5 per vehicle, which is spent on insurance, music, marketing, licenses and other necessities for putting on the event. Disabled parking is available at Nunney Village Hall, which also hosts an arts and crafts market.

Nunney is located 3 miles southwest of Frome on the border of Somerset and Wiltshire (A361/Nunney Catch roundabout). If you are using sat nav, the postcode is BA11 4LW.

Roads through the centre of Nunney are closed from 8am to 6pm. Driving through the fair during the event puts lives and our licence to organise events at risk.

There are three large car parks clearly signposted for visitors on the day of Nunney Fayre. Parking costs £5 per vehicle, regardless of the number of passengers. Admission to Nunney Fayre itself is free.

The organisers are reguarly asked why there is a charge for parking. The answer is simple: there is no charge to visit the fayre. The money from parking is the only income for Nunney Community Association – a registered charity – and is vital to pay for everything from insurance, event licences, the bands, sound system, street entertainment and everything else that makes Nunney Fayre such a fantastic day out.

If you park outside the designated car parks, your vehicle may be removed without warning if it blocks access for emergency services at any time.

Parking for drivers with a disability blue badge is available at Nunney village hall. This is organised by the Nunney Village Hall Committee and not by Nunney Community Association.

There is no public transport to and from Nunney at weekends, including on Nunney Fayre day.
