Appleby - Highly Commended 


Appleby Fair is an annual event which brings our local community together as well as attracting hundreds of people from our surrounding communities.

The traditional format of the fair is highly regarded, and comprises many village attractions and country style stalls. The show very much belongs to the village, with several village members volunteering their time to ensure it’s a great event.

The organisers are always looking for fresh ideas, and new stalls, as well as exhibitors and community groups who wish to be involved.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of our village Fair please contact,
