Back on air for the 2017 Show – 24/7 from August 19th- 29th!

Celebrating our 15th year on air, Steam Fair FM will be broadcasting round the clock for 10 days at the 2017 Great Dorset Steam Fair.

For the third consecutive year, we’re delighted that the National Traction Engine Trust has joined forces with the show and ourselves to make it all happen.

Following a successful change to the show dates in 2016, Great Dorset Steam Fair has confirmed that the 2017 show will run from Thursday 24th August to Bank Holiday Monday 28th August. Following a review of last year’s procedures, the pre-show set up period will be extended by one day, with exhibitors, traders and pre-paid campers now able to gain access from 8.00am on Sunday 20th. In response to this, Steam Fair FM will go on air (and online) at midnight on Saturday 19th, and broadcast 24/7 until Tuesday 29th – 10 days of broadcasting.

Once again you’ll be able to listen on 87.9FM in Dorset, and via our online stream everywhere else. We’ll bring you the sounds and smells of the 49th Gt Dorset Steam Fair, along with traffic and weather, show news and interviews, fabulous competitions....and of course, all the greatest Vintage Hits!
