This annual event, a huge exhibition of machinery from bygone eras together with additional modern attractions, takes place near Blandford Forum at the end of August. The Fair celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and has evolved over that time to become the leading show of its type throughout the world – the 2018 show will feature over 2000 exhibits, including 500 steam engines. The Information Centre at Trowbridge Town Council is now selling tickets for this event – for prices, call 01225 765072 or email in**@tr********.uk.
