Carters, the Victorian steam fair has cold boilers due the lockdown and wont be travelling in the near future – but you can still have the fun of the fair at home.

Like most entertainments that have had to shut-down, they’ve turned to alternative ideas to keep the bills paid, so they’ve set up an online shop to sell some of their other non-funfair items, from books and posters to having your own painted fun fair sign.

Posters cost £5 each and art in classic Victorian styles.

Tote bags are £10 each.

More personalised though, their sign painters who usually spend the months touching up their rides and signs will made a sign for you.

Range from £150 upwards depending on the size you want.

Your name on a ride – For a higher price, you can have your name on an Austin or a Dodgem car in their license plates for the next five years, or on the neck of one of their galloping horses.

There’s also a range of books about the history of this modern travelling Victorian steam fair.

All to keep the fun of the fair going until the fair can start travelling once more.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
