Bouncy castles at the summer fayre

Summer Fair


Our Customer Summer Fair is back for another year!

The Fair is all about fun, so for the young (and young at heart) we have face painting, a bouncy castle, donkey rides, a mini petting zoo, party games and much more.

The fun isn’t just for the young ones though. You may be an adult but let us take away some of your ‘adult worry’ for just one day with this free event. We have games such as bingo and tombola, plus the chance to get advice from our money matters team. All ages will find plenty to do with our partners and their stalls, with games and competitions galore.

You and your family will also be treated to a free meal too. No matter what your age, we have plenty to keep you entertained. Come and meet our team and involved customers, and, if you feel like you want to join in, there'll be plenty of games and activities suitable for all ages

All customers living in a NDH home can attend our event for free! They can also bring a friend or two along with them to enjoy the day for free too! When reserving tickets, make sure you book a Guest Ticket for your friends and a Customer Ticket for each person in your household.

On the day a free meal will be provided for all ticket holders. When you reserve your tickets it will ask you to choose a meal option per ticket holder. Pre-orders help us to prepare rough food quantities and reduce food waste on the day. The meal choices are:

  • Beef burger
  • Hot dog
  • Veggie burger
  • Cheese and tomato pizza
  • Ham baguette
  • Cheese baguette
  • Cold pasta salad box

Chips will also be available

To help the planet we are arranging free buses again for 2024. Bus transport must be booked in advance using the ticket system below. Buses will be dropped off and picked up right next to the event field. We will email all customers who have booked transport to confirm times the week before the event.

Bus 1: Lynton, Combe Martin, Ilfracombe (Candar & Slade Valley)
Bus 2: Woolacombe, Croyde, Braunton, Wrafton
Bus 3: Barnstaple (Sticklepath Hill, Pilton College, Gorwell Road, Near Magdalene Lawn, Near Medard & Whiddon Valley)
Bus 4: Witheridge, Sellick Court, South Molton, Swimbridge, Landkey
Bus 5: Chulmleigh, Burrington, Umberleigh, Bishops Tawton

As well as our planned bus stops above running at the beginning and end of the day, we have also organised a shuttle bus around the Barnstaple stops from Bus 3 running from 11am until 2pm for first come, first serve hop on/hop off bus journeys.

We want to encourage use of our free buses, but where that's not possible there is parking at the free Park & Ride car park next to the school. This is around 200m from the entrance to the event field. There will also be a drop off spot at the bus stop by the event field for those who want to drop off anyone/thing before parking.

We have a limited amount of disabled parking in the school site available to book on a first come, first serve basis.

Access to the event will be from 10.45am. Before this time you will only have access to the Park and Ride car park. Registration will open at 11am.

The school is fully accessible and flat. Please note however, that a lot of our activity is on a grass field, and if the weather has been wet access may be difficult with a standard wheelchair. Our team will be on hand to help wherever we can to help with access to activities on the field if this is the case but want to let customer's know in advance in case alternative arrangements can be made.

Please note that the school is strictly no dogs, apart from assistance dogs.

If the Book here button is no longer active this is because tickets had to be booked by Sunday 21st July to ensure you could get a free meal. If you haven't pre-booked tickets you can still turn up on the day and visit our walk up registration desks. You won't be guaranteed a meal but you will get access to all other activities.

No, you will not be permitted to smoke or vape on the school field, but we will provide designated smoking areas where you can go.
