As well as our Group events many members attend various other events throughout the year. One of the biggest of these events has to be the Great Dorset Steam Fair. Held in over 600 acres of rolling Dorset countryside the event is one of the largest of its type in the word.

The Great Dorset Steam fair is held each year at the end of August. It is the biggest event of its type in the world with 200,000 visitors attending the event in over 600 acres of rolling Dorset countryside. Held in the small village of Tarrant Hinton a few miles from the historic town of Blandford Forum. 2018 celebrated the events 50th anniversary year and many of our club members were in attendance. For more details please see the link below. Martin Oliver has announced that The Great Dorset Steam Fair will be making a very welcome return in 2022. 

Buckham Fair Beaminster

Several Dorset Group members have enjoyed visiting Buckham Fair in Beaminster, Dorset. The event was hosted by Martin (Doc Martin) Clunes and his team. 2017 was a record-breaking year, raising £99,000 for the Somerset and Dorset Air Ambulance. 2018 was even better when the total was a staggering £111,000 for the Dorset County Hospital Charity Appeal. Update: April 2020. Martin Clunes and his team have announced that Buckham Fair may not be returning. But, he has said never say never. If I hear anything different I will post it here.
