More photos from the 2005 show.
Medieval jousting from the (ahem) 'Knights of the Dammed' in the main arena.
Motorcyle display team on the main arena. All of the riders were under 18, with the youngest being just seven years old.
The phrase 'Ring Of Fire' may conjure up quite a different mental picture for seasoned curry eaters, but here's one of the motorcyclists roaring through the flames.
Kids watching the motorcycle display in the main arena.
Animated riders on the 'No Fear' ride.
Here's the bit where the two pods on the Skyfire ride hang upside down and the people inside make a right racket!
Kids on the bouncy thing.
'Beat the Ice Hockey goalie'.
This guy belted four ferocious goals past the hapless bloke in goal!
Seeing as most Brixtonites are very well acquainted with the sound of police helicopters hovering overhead throughout the night, it was nice to get a close up.
Jerk chicken stall.
Every year, there's a guy at the fair carving up great chunks of wood to make mushroom-shaped seats. I've no idea who buys them.
Two old people and a stuffed creature relax in the sun.
Looking down at the fairground from near Brockwell Hall.
A fellow Welshman impressed the crowds with a winning sheepdog display.
In a masterful crowd-pleasing stroke, the farmer replaced the sheep with ducks and then successfully herded them around groups of volunteer children.
A last look at the main stage. Roll on 2006!
