Save the date! Buckfast Abbey’s Summer Fair is back

Our popular Summer Fair will be returning this August for three days filled with an array of food, music, crafts and entertainment.

Running from Thursday 4th – Sunday 6th August (10am-5pm) the Summer Fair will offer a fabulous mix of independent stalls ranging from crafts to local artisan food and drink producers, as well as engaging, live food demonstrations.

Alongside a mix of food stalls, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to explore the Abbey’s beautiful gardens and enjoy live entertainment from local performers, such as the Newton Bushel Morris Dancers, the Rock Choir, the Brent Singers, the Ben and Steve string duo, and singer/songwriter Jamie Leigh, to name just a few.

Free to enter, with on-site parking available for £5, there’s plenty to keep the whole family entertained with a kids zone and outdoor family treasure hunt, which includes a trail of hidden clues within the Abbey grounds.
