Spancilhill Fair is set for another great year but with the exception of the Donkey Derby.

This year’s Spancilhill Fair is on Monday, June 24th. The first charter for this historic fair was granted by King Charles over 300 years ago.

Whether you are buying or selling at Spancilhill Fair or just there to watch the traditional way of dealing in horses, you are sure to enjoy the day. There will be a family fun day on the eve of the fair, starting at 2:00. But this year will not see the return of the donkey derby which is set to bring people from all across the county to get involved. Pat Hannon who is part of the organsing committee for the fair explains it for insurance reasons.
