A Family Business
Established in 2003, Benson’s M&L Pleasure Fairs, owned by Mark Benson and his wife, Lillian Shaw, has a strong heritage based on a professional Showman family background.
Mark’s history lies with Benson Fun Fairs with which he continues to remain very much involved. Together with Lillian, they have worked hard to build the M&L Pleasure Fairs brand and are both very proud of its professional and reliable reputation throughout London and the surrounding areas.
Bringing pleasure to the communities within which they work is of paramount importance to Mark and Lillian and they strive to provide an unrivalled experience for each and every client, fiercely proud of the repeat business they attract and the glowing testimonials regularly received.
Safety is Paramount
Safety is the number one priority for Benson’s M&L Pleasure Fairs. As a family owned business we truly understand the need to operate our business in the most secure environment, where family members can feel entirely safe.
All our rides and equipment are covered by ADIPS (Amusement Device Inspection Procedures Scheme) certificates which ensures amusement devices are regularly inspected and certified as safe for use by competent persons. ADIPS also works with the HSE to provide best practice guidance and training to those working in the fairground and amusement park industry.
We make and record daily safety checks of all of our equipment and use gauges to monitor wind speed periodically during the operation of our inflatables to ensure safe wind conditions.
All Benson’s M&L Pleasure Fairs’ staff involved in building and operating our rides are very experienced and fully trained. We are fully covered for Public Liability for all of our rides and equipment to the value of £10 million.
The Showmen’s Guild is the official trade body representing the UK fun fair industry. When the fair arrives in your town, it does so after months of planning and co-operation between various parties. The Showmen’s Guild is there to ensure that its members operate honestly and effectively and that fairs run smoothly and safely for the enjoyment of the general public.
Choosing a fairground operator that is a member of The Showmen’s Guild ensures they carry all the relevant health & safety, insurance and risk assessment certificates and that they adhere to a system of “fair play” that governs the way they do business.
Benson’s M&L Pleasure Fairs is proud to be members of the Showmen’s Guild of Great Britain.
