HAMBURG WINTER DOM 2016
Another DVD for lovers of the Breakdancer type ride, once again, Hamburg had three to choose from.

UK FUNFAIRS Vol.22 Plymouth
Usually held around Easter time, Anderton & Rowland always manage to assemble most of their own rides at CENTRAL PARK, close the ground of Plymouth Argyle FC. With visits in 1992 and 2000, there are noticeable changes to the ride line ups here. David Rowland held a tidy fair on THE HOE for the 1995 VE Day Anniversary Celebrations, which featured modern and traditional amusements. Although it was May, the weather was blisteringly hot. On the western edge of the city sits PLYMPTON, where A&R’s No.2 Section make a spring visit, seen here in 1993 and 1995. We were lucky enough here to catch the showmen exercising their signwriting skills.

UK FUNFAIRS Vol.20 SOUTH YORKSHIRE

Both contain a huge selection of rides, including a Waltzer with Superbob style cars, Beach Buggy Dodgems, Holland’s vintage Cakewalk, whilst Warwick’s Skid attended both. International Funfairs opened in DONCASTER Town Centre in 1995 with superb line up of attractions, including a Giant Wheel, which had opened in Leeds shortly before. 1997 saw our camera at KIMBERWORTH for a very tidy fair, which included the “Elite Waltzer” of Alexandra Moran, formerly one of two travelled by legendary Doubtfires

TRANSPORT OF DELIGHT Volume 38
By way of a change, our 2013 coverage of transport at Nottingham Goose Fair has extended highlights of the Monday pull off, culminating with the exodus of the loads of the massive "Air" ride. Other big loads include M&D's Bomber Mk.2 and Giant Wheel along with many others heading for Hull. Pulling on was also recorded on the Friday (only) and was a surprisingly busy day, with good whole variety of loads and living vans entering the Forest site.
NOTTINGHAM GOOSE FAIR 2013
Captured both on the Thursday and the Saturday, 2013 Goose Fair appears to be two different fairs due to contrasting weather conditions over both days. Aerial rides were prevelant in a year in which there were many positional changes due to the absence of regular attendees, and the first time appearances of many more. New were: Mellors's Group Starflyer, A.Danter's Air, D.Hackett's XCELER8, H.Parrish's & W.Danter's Extremes, G. Evans' Waltzer, W.Roberts' Afterburner. Add to these the decadent nostalgia of J.Bowry's Skid, along with the return after several years of both W.Percival's Waltzer and J.W. Shaw's Orbiter
BUILDING UP JUVENILE RIDES
DISNEYLAND RIDE: Always well presented, Bert Holland’s brightly decorated cartoon character ride enhances any fair that it attends and is seen building up at Buxton in 2011.
SEA ON LAND: Built in the 1960s, the Keeling family’s Sea On Land ride is almost unique on the vintage fairground scene, and provides an interesting contrast to more contemporary rides. Filmed at Brookside Garden Centre, near Stockport.
RACE-O-RAMA: Recent years have seen several of these smart modern rides built, although they have a similar action to the erstwhile Whip rides of a few years ago. Witnessed building up in very warm conditions at Buxton in 2013
Hyde Park WINTER WONDERLAND 2012
For a brief preview
The Hyde Park Winter Wonderland presentation is now firmly established as a major London attraction, visited by thousands of people from all over the UK and beyond. Take a trip around the unique seasonal atmosphere of this event with a tour of the rides and attractions appearing here from within the UK and Europe.
NOTTINGHAM GOOSE FAIR 2012
A spectacular newcomer for this year was Stanley Reeves' Jnr's Atmos Fear ride, swinging and spinning it's brave rider through all sorts of angles and through 360 degrees. It was 1988 when a Skid ride last appeared here, but Jimmy Bowry for 2012 stirred up the nostalgia stakes when he supplied his version. There were also several positional changes for this year, ensuring a fresh look, along with some glorious sunshine for filming. This volume also includes footage of rides in action after dark
TRANSPORT OF DELIGHT 37
Fairground loads seen arriving at Forest Ground for the 2012 Goose Fair on the Friday and Sunday prior to this historic event held in Nottingham. Lorries with loads and living wagons in tow from all over the country are seen here in action in this volume.
UK FUNFAIRS Vol.19 - WIRRAL SHOW
For a brief preview
The massive funfair provided by the Hackett family in support of the annual Wirral Show opened on the vast seafront at New Brighton always managed to attract the UKs premier fairground rides, with little or no duplication. Sadly, the Show ceased following the 2009 event, but our cameras were fortunate to record the 2002 and 2005 fairs, which are covered in this volume. Includes: Crazy Shake, both Silcock Waltzers, Powersurge, Twister Spinning Coaster, Speed Flip, Acrobat, Swing Explorer, Superspin, Toboggan Vertical Lift Coaster, Roller, Wild Mouse, Log Flume and many more.
UK FUNFAIRS Vol.18 - EAST COAST PARKS

Also featured is BRADFORD'S Peel Park Bank Holiday Fair in 1997
BLACKPOOL HERITAGE TRAM SUNSET
Preview.... Sunday 6th November 2011 marked the end of an era for Blackpool’s Tramway when the final “everyday” service featured the Heritage Trams.

UK FUNFAIRS Vol.15: SUMMER OF 1989

Rides such as Billy Wawick's Skid, Roger Hall's Divebomber, Arthur Holland's Matterhorn, Albert Holland's Cyclone and Paratrooper, William Wood's Skyliners, James Mellors' Sizzler and Orbiter are just memories. The market area at BAKEWELL has been redeveloped meaning James Whiting's fair has been relocated across the river, but the fair at BUXTON continues as before with only Bert Holland's Waltzer regularly attending amongst the more modern rides of today.
UK FUNFAIRS Vol.14: GLOUCESTER
The Midlands based firm of Bob Wilson have long been associated with the Gloucester Park Carnival fair, and it probably reached it's peak for the fairground enthusiast during the 1990s. This volume records the rides in 1992 and 1994, but who recalls Abie Danter's Easyrider and the late Ronnie Taylor's boxing saloon being there?

Some of the regular attendees were relocated giving this time honoured fair a different look.

Once again, the transport for the largest of the Peak District Well Dressing fairs is captured on arrival at BAKEWELL and BUXTON in 2010.

Also included is footage from 1996, when almost new, and of Stevens' similar Megaspin ride.

UK FUNFAIRS Vol.11 - NORTH WALES
TIR PRINCE Raceway at TOWYN was visited by our camera in 2001, and throughout the season is a huge draw for the huge caravan population nearby who have the choice of park and travelling amusement rides. LLANDUDNO'S Victorian Weekend never fails to attract huge numbers of visitors. It's main streets are closed to all traffic and taken over by fairground rides for three days. Sadly, there is a higher proportion of modern rides these days, but there still remains a sizeable attendance of traditional amusements, all contributing to this resort's popular and unique May Bank Holiday event in 2010.

BUILDING UP THE 20th CENTURY THRILLER
The full build up of Richard Millband's 20th Century Thriller on it's debut in his ownership at Lincoln in 2009. This machine (originally built by Orton & Spooner) has been rebuilt over a three year period by Richard and his family, along with a dedicated band of helpers. The resulting efforts are no less than a joy to behold, and when open the ride has a faithfully recreated 1960s atmosphere
TEWKESBURY MOP FAIR 2009
Coverage begins with the fairground loads arriving in Spring Gardens car park at midnight prior to the following day's build of the rides. Also recorded are the civic opening and extended coverage of the fair by day and in all it's glory after dark
NOTTINGHAM GOOSE FAIR 2009
Nottingham's 2009 Goose Fair was inundated with aerial rides, whereby there were just as many people in the air as walking on the ground! Of these, P.Sedgewick's "Rock Rage" and D.Taylor's "Star Flyer" were welcome newcomers, alongside some regular favourites, both white knuckle and more traditional. Changes to the layout also added to the appeal of this year's event
TRANSPORT of DELIGHT Volume 33
1: Some of the vintage attractions arriving at Lincoln Showground for the August 2008 Rally, including the Moonrocket, Rotor & Paul Hyman's smart Foden and ERF Dodgem transport. 2: Michael Evans' coverage of the pull off at Telford in Spring 1991 featured a nice Scammell Pioneer winching the loads off a very muddy tober. Featured are: G.Stoke's Dodgem, T.Cogger's Superbob, W.Roberts' Meteorite and other rides. 3: A visit to Burton On Trent in 2008 for the lunchtime pull on, which sees some intricate positioning of the showmen's rides. Henry Stanworth's Maxwell Waltzer was probably making it's final appearance here, with a replacement machine due in 2009
BUILDING UP THE MOONROCKET
The complete build up of Howard Maden's Maxwell-Lakin built Moonrocket ride in it's 70th Anniversary year which coincided with it's 10th appearance at the Lincoln Steam Rally in 2008. Originally travelled by the Shaw family from Lancashire, it attended such major fairs as Newcastle Town Moor, Nottingham Goose Fair and Hull until 1982. Howard Maden acquired the ride in 1992, and along with family & friends restored the ride to it's current condition and it is the only complete surviving example of it's type. This DVD also sees the ride open for the first time in their ownership at Rawcliffe in 1993, at Harewood House Steam Rally and at Hull Fair in 1994. Hold tight for a fast ride!
NOTTINGHAM GOOSE FAIR 2008
Whether it's sedate traditional carousel type rides or fast and furious novelty rides then Nottingham Goose Fair can be relied upon to have them all. Thrilling everyone in 2008 were the Eclipse and Spiderman of M&D Taylor, Harris's City Hopper and Chaos, S&D's Reverse Bungee, Harniess's Sea Storm, two Spinning Mouse rides, two Giant Wheels seen from day through to night

As filmed on the Saturday & Sunday only.
WHITBY REGATTA FAIR
The people of Whitby always turn out to see the night arrival of the Regatta Fair at dusk as the lorries descend the notorious Khyber Pass, and even breaking into spontaneous applause! The one day fair is very unusual in that it is built on a stone jetty, and is therefore surrounded by the sea. This limits the style of amusements which can be operated here due to the narrow width, but, nevertheless, the local fairgoers are out in force as early as 10am.
BONUS CHAPTER: Footage from Luna Park at Scarborough.
TRAINS AROUND DAWLISH
Lineside footage of trains in action along the scenically renowned stretch of railway between Teignmouth and Powderham from 1990 and the subsequent twelve years or so.
