Grand May Fayre 7th May 2018

9 April 2018

Roll up Roll up, the Horsell Scouts and Guides May Fayre is coming to town for its 40th year!

40 year anniversary


Venue: Wheatsheaf Recreation Ground, Chobham Road, Woking, GU21 4BL


Date: 7th May 2018, 11.45am till 4.30pm


Turning 40 is a milestone that may be considered middle aged or over the hill, however with the May Fayre we are only just getting started and have had years of experience to perfect this annual event.

The exciting free event in the annual Horsell social calendar, is to be opened at 12 midday by The Mayor of Woking, Cllr. Graham Cundy with County and local dignitaries from Scouts and Guides. There will be something for everyone. Make sure you put it in your calendar.

Always on the lookout for new and exciting shows to entertain all ages, our main arena event this year is something a little different. Adams Axemen, a lumberjack display team from New Forest in Dorset, are great showmen who put a whole new spin on what they can do with an axe and a saw.

After enjoying the Soft play, inflatables, face painting, and the popular climbing wall, all should sit back and take it easy, watching the talented Summercales Dancers and listening to live music from the Music Marquee with live music all afternoon from local performers, including and starring Stillwell and Lacey. Singers, musicians and even bell ringers. Another enjoyable part of the day is the sampling of the delights created on the BBQ or pancake stall, washed down with fine ales from the Thurston Brewery beer tent, you and your friends and family will have a great day.


As the main annual fundraising event for Horsell Scouts and Guides look out for the May Fayre Programmes for £1, available before the day in Horsell shops and from our door to door Guides and Scouts in the local area. On the day, they will also be available together with the hourly raffle with many great prizes for everyone to win.


This year’s fantastic May Fayre sponsors are Seymours Estate Agents, Horsell, Trident Honda, Halstead School, WADP Architects and the Victoria Chiropractor Centre. Without them, the May Fayre would struggle to provide the first rate family entertainment that it does each year – Thank you!
