St George And Fordington


Fordington’s Fair on the Green

St. Georges Day is commemorated by the Fair on the Green on the nearest Saturday to 23rd April every year, with the permission of the Duchy {how jolly nice of him!}, and although the lamb roast has been replaced by the a hog roast, the Fair retains all the atmosphere of a village fair. Fordington Green has the distinction of being the only ‘village green’ designated under the Commons Act 2005, in Dorchester.
