Carterton's Annual
May Day Fair & Car Boot Sale
Monday 6th May 2019
We had thousands of people braving scorching heat in May 2018 and flocking to the Carterton recreation ground to enjoy a fun filled family day out. We had lots of stalls and attractions including Pete the Baby T-Rex, a Jurassic Park Jeep, the Iron Throne, Punch & Judy, fairground rides, a craft marquee, refreshments and a fabulous dog show run by K9 Playtime Academy.
Thank-you to everyone who supported our event and made it such a success, you helped us raise nearly £7,000 for Save the Children Fund which goes to help disadvantaged children in this country and abroad.
We look forward to seeing you all in 2019 which will be our 40th annual event and will be bigger and better than ever!
Coming to May Day 2019!

Winter is coming... and so is the Iron Throne to Carterton's May Day Fair!!

Will you be brave enough to meet 'Raptor' the Velociraptor??

Meet Thanos and sit on his throne! I'm sure he's a nice guy really...

As well as a dinosaur we also have a Jurassic Park Jeep! 

The ruler of Westeros will soon be decided with the return of Game of Thrones to
our TV screens but who will it be? Jon Snow, Khaleesi, Cersei… you?
 
We are very excited to have the Iron Throne once again returning to Carterton, so come along and dispense justice from atop this Iron Throne replica, even take your photo in exchange for a donation to Save the Children Fund.
You better watch out on May Day incase you come across 'Raptor' the Velociraptor!! But don't worry Raptors World have got him well trained and he's very safe!
 
See if you can hunt him down inside Brownes Hall or if it's a nice day he might be prowling around on the field...
If you're like me and eagerly awaiting Avengers: Endgame then you'll be very excited to learn that at this years May Day Fair you'll have the chance to meet Thanos and sit on his throne!!

Check out Brownes Hall and sit on Thanos's throne and have a picture with
the big guy himself in exchange for a donation to Save the Children Fund.
I hope we have lots of dinosaur fans coming as we also have a replica Jurassic Park Jepp coming along! 

Check it out near the vintage cars and take your photo. Be careful of 'Raptor' who might be prowling around nearby...
