Silcock’s Fun Fairs!
Silcock’s Amusements is a multi-generational family business established for over 100 years. We take pride in keeping up to date with the latest funfair rides and attractions, whilst offering all the traditional family favourites.
Covid 19

Silcock’s are one of the biggest and best-known names in the fairground business. We’re not just an agency offering a ‘wish list’ of rides supplied by others. We are out there every day working hard to fulfil our clients’ needs. So we know exactly what we’re talking about and what will or will not work for you!

John Silcock, the current owner of the business, has been operating in the leisure industry for over 40 years after taking over the family firm from his father Edward (‘Teddy’) Silcock. During the past four decades, he has expanded both the selection of rides and attractions we now offer and the variety of events we attend. 

We guarantee to make your event unique and exciting; something your visitors will always remember and makes you stand out from the crowd. 

music festivals and more

Our rides and attractions are a familiar sight at events such as Nottingham Goose Fair, Hull Fair and Warrington Walking Days. We also have many years’ experience operating at large scale music festivals such as Creamfields and Reminisce.

Some of our rides have appeared as far away as Edinburgh for the Hogmanay celebrations, Dublin for the St Patrick’s Day parade and the Isle of Mann for the famous TT Races.

And now you can hire our attractions for your event too – anywhere in the UK.

Safety first

Fairgrounds and amusement parks represent some of the safest leisure activities of all. In fact, you are far more likely to have an accident travelling to a fair than while you are there.
You can be sure that the rides and attractions supplied by Silcock’s are operated to the highest safety standards.

Above all, our reputation has been built on quality service, reliability, first-class attractions and complete customer satisfaction.
