The focal point of our travelling business has been the Golden Gallopers now owned by the third generation of the Noyce family. The roundabout was built by Savages of Kings Lynn in 1884 for a Welsh showman John Studt. The ride was purchased by Hampshire showman James Noyce in 1950 just after the ride was decorated by a well known fairground painter, Neddy Matthews. James Noyce Senior passed away in 1974 and the ride was then travelled many of the country's major fairs by his two sons Tommy and Jimmy. Throughout the 80's and 90's some of the fairs which the Gallopers had graced include Leeds Valentines Fair, Cardiff Big Weekend Fair, Oxford St. Giles, Witney Feast, Bridgwater, Nottingham Goose Fair, Stratford Mop, Banbury Michaelmas Fair, Chichester Sloe Fair and Loughborough Fair. The Golden Gallopers are now owned and operated by the late James Noyce's grandson Joseph (better known as Joey) Noyce and his wife Narvenka. Narvenka herself comes from a famous Lancashire family well-known for the Moon Rocket ride travelled by her grandfather the late Walter Shaw. The Moon Rocket is now a resident at the Dingles Museum in Devon.


Our newest major additions to the collection is the Sky Flyer. Take to the skies in this exhilarating tower ride that twist and spins riders to dizzying heights. It is a spectacular attraction that appeals to both young and old and is a landmark attraction wherever it appears towering 30 metres into the sky.
