Enjoy the rides at Carter's Steam Fair

A reader has been in touch to recommend everyone heads along to the Carters Steam Fair in Ravenscourt Park today.

Carters Steam Fair travels around London and the South East for seven months of the year, and is the result of John Carter's work collecting old of fair equipment which had become unfashionable or derelict. The funfair has been collected over thirty years, and though John Carter sadly died ten years ago, it continues to tour London and the South East for seven months of the year, transported in historic vehicles from site to site.

The highlight this year's funfair is James Messham's Wall Of Death, which the reader who contacted your author particularly recommended, so head along to Ravenscourt Park today if you want to enjoy the rides, or watch out for the fair over the summer at various festivals and events. If you really enjoy it the Wall Of Death is even adverstising for staff.
