One of only two surviving examples and the only one in the UK. John Morley will be presenting his Vintage Old Time Arcade with an array of vintage slot, fruit and novelty machines, Fortune Teller and What The Butler Saw complete with his 37 key Verbeeck organ. He is also bringing along his lovely 1950s Winnards train ride which is a popular attraction for children and adults alike with its authentic classic "clickety clack" as the train goes around the track. For the children there will be a visiting traditional Juvenile Dobby Horse roundabout complete with Dean organ and a Juvenile Ark roundabout. There will be supporting fairground side shows as well as a display of fairground models, vintage fairground transport and showmans living wagons plus a gathering of traditional fair, street and dance organs.

All this plus the steam collections railways and traction engine hauled rides too!
