Illustrated Guide: Dingles Fairground Heritage CentreProduct no.: B096
NEW EDITION MARCH 2013
Without a doubt the artefacts assembled by the Fairground Heritage Trust represents the single most important collection of historic fairground items in this country.
It portrays a period when gilded carved work and artistic competence saw the production of some of the most lavish shows and roundabouts ever seen.
It also represents the hertage of a group pf people who are often neglected amongst the itinerant population of Britain: the travelling showmen are an identified scoial group who are extremely proud of their past but often not in a position to be able to preserve it.
Since it's inception in 1986 the Trust has endured a challenging history itself, but a rescue package successfully brought the colelction a new home in Devon - The opening of the Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre in 2007 was the result of many years of hard work, and an unswerving belief in the cause.
