Ide Hill Village Fair View attachment 87 This May bank holiday (31st May) will once again see the beautiful village of Ide Hill, Kent, host its annual village fair, famous for always starting the summer Fair season with the perfect bank holiday formula. The event is a must for families in the region who are looking for a fun, quintessentially English day out. With everything from bouncy castles to quad biking and cheese rolling to tug of war, not forgetting numerous food stalls, face painting, coconut shies, pony rides and bouncy castles, there is something for everyone. Operating on traditional Village lines, with a fabulous tea tent and scrumptious cakes, the ever popular roller ride has a constant queue of children from even before opening time at 2:00 pm. Michael Fallon MP, a regular in Ide Hill, said, says Vicki Morris, who lives in the village and has been planning the event for the last few months.

The Fair coincides with the St Mary's Church Flower Festival, adjacent to the Green, and an oasis of stillness and beauty. The fair is open from 2pm with plenty of parking available.
