More Info About Oatlands Village Fayre

Oatlands Village Fayre is a traditional village fayre that was started in 1953 and has been running continuously since 1962.

It is organised primarily by parents and friends of Oatlands Scout and Guide Groups for the enjoyment of local people and is a well established local community event.

Initially it was held in the Working Men’s Club in Oatlands Village, Weybridge but it soon outgrew this site and relocated to its present site at the Oatlands Recreation Ground, opposite Oatlands Park Hotel.

The Fayre attracts 4,000 paying visitors and has 50 stalls manned by volunteers or commercial organisations. Each year there is always a main attraction. But there will also be the Cleves School Steel Pans, the Cubs Tug of War competition and the Oatlands Pipe Band, amongst other displays.

This is a fund raising event but it is also a special local community day. Old acquaintances/friendships are re-made and community well-being and spirit is strengthened. It typically raises in the region of £10,000 – £15,000 each year for many local charities including the local Scouts and Guides packs, Walton Leigh School for Special Needs, Youth Carers, Oatlands School, and Cleves School.
