Stamford's historic stone buildings were an
impressive backdrop to the Mid-Lent 1996 fair which was reported as being one of
Lincolnshire's biggest, rivalling Lincoln and Boston Fair. A dozen major attractions were
new this year, with some never seen before at Stamford. The newcomers sat side by side
with the regulars and included Rolling Thunder, King's Circus Fun House, Horror Express,
Terminator and Evans' repainted Waltzer, to name but a few.
The big guns were John Crick's Ranger, imported from Germany, which
spectacularly swung its boat between two buildings; and James Mellors' new Crazy Shake,
which stimulated great interest.
The video features stunning night time operation with the
majority of rides shown and includes transport, the pull-on, build up and pull down.
Primetime's unique commentary-free style guarantees a feast of fairground sounds which
complement the superb picture quality.
