Win a May Fair golden ticket


This is your chance to win a golden ticket for the Boston May Fair.

For the first time last year, one lucky winner got the chance to go on every ride at the May Fair for free.

Fact mirrored fiction when the winner of the Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory-style golden ticket was Charlie, just like in the famous Roald Dahl story.

Eight-year-old Charlie Rigby received his special pass from the mayor of Boston.

The May Fair showmen have again made one special golden ticket available entitling the winner to go on every ride for free for as many times as they want - everything from the gentle rides to the big-thrill attractions.

Bernard Mitchell, secretary of the Derby, Notts, Mid and South Lincs section of the Showmen’s Guild of Great Britain, said: “Last year’s event was great fun and it was brilliant to see the smile on Charlie’s face when he received his golden ticket.

“The showmen decided they’d like to do it again this year. Boston is a real favourite with the showmen, and the May Fair has a special place in their hearts.”
