Our History

We have been doing it a long time...

Moving with the Times...

Proud of our Heritage...

The name Bensons is synonymous with high-quality Fun Fairs. As one of the most long-standing names in the Showmen’s Industry going back generations, Bensons Fun Fairs has been running Fun Fairs for long before most other showmen.

Famous for fabulous, brightly painted lorries and leading professionalism, Bensons Fun Fairs manages to stay on track, even in the most extreme of weather conditions, working tirelessly to put an event together and to ensure every site visited is left in at least as good a condition, if not better, than which it was found.

Constantly re-investing in new rides and equipment, Bensons Fun Fairs has a reputation for putting customer and visitor safety first . All events are comprehensively insured (ten million pounds public liability insurance). All rides are fully inspected by ADIPS and operated by experienced, trained staff. Registered and qualified First Aiders are always on-site.

Having been brought up with a strong sense of standards and ethics, instilled by his family’s history of operating Bensons Fun Fairs, Mark Benson began Benson’s M&L Pleasure Fairs with his wife Lillian, operating to the same exacting high standards and continuing the Bensons heritage in the name of Benson’s M&L Pleasure Fairs.

Still going strong to this day, with lots of new and improved attractions and exciting rides to bring joy to the local communities in which we work.
