“It is the intention of the Fayre Times Festival management to establish an annual festival which celebrates the history, pageantry and cultural heritage of the United Kingdom. It is our intention to achieve this by showcasing a variety of hobbies, interests and lifestyles which embrace the United Kingdom’s historical, mythological and fictional past. We intend to provide an environment where members of the public can experience first-hand, re-enactment; live action role-play, table top role-playing and war gaming, cosplay, modelling, paint balling, laser tag, air soft and European martial arts.
We will also be providing a location for traders from each of these disciplines to come and sell their goods to both members of their hobby and members of the public who are interested in getting involved. We will be inviting existing groups to run stalls or exhibitions where they can advertise their groups and increase their membership as well as entertain the public. The idea is that we will also involve groups who promote study of all things historical and mythological as well as new age groups whose area of expertise overlaps those above.
It is our intention to then run a series of events and activities aimed at either hobby enthusiasts or the general members of the public, culminating in a festival which brings them all together thus establishing ourselves as the premier promoter of History, Re-enactment, LARP and Table Top Gaming in the UK.”


All of the staff involved with Fayre Times Festival Ltd come from a variety of backgrounds however we all share an interest in History, Mythology or Folklore and we all continue to take part in one or more of the following hobbies: re-enactment; live action role-play, table top role-playing and war gaming, cosplay, modelling, paint balling, laser tag, air soft and European martial arts.

Many of us read Science-Fiction, Fantasy and Horror books, comics and graphic novels and almost all of us retain a childlike enthusiasm for what we do.

For us using our imaginations and trying to fulfil our dreams is not seen as a waste of time but an essential part of been who we are and achieving our shared goals. We also realise that if we wait for others to make the changes we desire to the society we belong to we may well never see those changes effected within our life time. It is therefore important for us to join up with and network with other individuals and groups who share our goals and put our energy into making those changes ourselves.

We welcome the input of others and will do our best to work with them in order to achieve our mission statement.

Gary Bates,

Managing Director of Fayre Times Festival Ltd.
