Devon Life Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre
We only recently found out about Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre from friends. So we were really pleased when they invited us to join them on their visit today.
The Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre is home to the National Fairground Collection and the Fairground Heritage Trust. It is a facility unique in the UK. There are superb displays of Fairground Art and Memorabilia, and a large array of vintage rides, stalls and shows. The vintage fairground rides operate every day throughout the season.
There are special themed events throughout the season, in addition to which they are open every day from April through to the end of October and weekends in November and December.
The Fairground Heritage Trust holds a unique collection for the nation that spans from the 1800s up to the present day. The artwork on rides and shows mirrors the social changes going on across the world. References to popular culture, fashions and trends were commonplace, often lasting for the duration of that trend before vanishing to be replaced by the next.
