Carter's Royal Berkshire Steam Fair is a travelling fair based in south-east England. The fair is known for restoring old amusement rides, showman's wagons and trucks, and has been featured on Antiques Roadshow. In 2011 the Carter family starred in ITN's reality series "Fairground Attractions" which followed the lives of three fairground families. In addition, a limited edition Corgidie-cast toy model of some vehicles and rides has been produced. The fair was established in 1976 by John Carter (1942-2000).
