What does my rental fee include?
Rental fee includes full, exclusive use of all outdoor facilities at Banbury Fair of Bartlett for the entire day and evening. During regular business hours, some common areas such as the veranda and Rabbit Petting Barn will also be available to retail customers of the Banbury Fair shops. Rental fee is for grounds only, and does not include any tents or access to the buildings, which are occupied by retail space.
