This arch was inspired by Edwardian fairground art and fabricated here in our very own workshop. In our usual ‘waste not, want not’ style, the top of the arch was constructed using a pretty bit of wood from a broken chair and old vintage croquet balls have been reimagined as the finials on top of the poles. 3D wooden letters in sky blue perch on top of a yellow and burnt orange arched background, while the wooden decal at the top in dark blue and gold has also been repurposed from a broken chair back. Finally, subtle gold coloured side poles serve to frame the harlequin sign effectively. All detailing is to the front, with the reverse neatly painted in a plain all over colour.
 
The height of this very fine thing is 240cm from the floor to the point of the arch and it measures 206cm wide. The frame is delivered in 5 pieces: the top, two side poles and two stands, plus two weights for extra stability. For transportation purposes you should note that the measurement of the largest part is 166cm wide by 50cm high by 13cm deep. Please be aware that this product requires a minimum of two people to set it up. Tools are not needed. On site risk assessment and safety while setting the item up are at the discretion of the hirer. This is a freestanding item that can be used inside or outside. It does, however, require flat standing and due to its size it is unsuitable for windy conditions.
 
Story
 
We created this tremendous treasure with the same whimsical feeling we had in mind when building the Circus and Red Curtain Arches, although this one is a has smaller feet and a much lighter top. We are strong believers in avoiding unnecessary waste - that broken chair we mentioned up above has also been used in the creation of at least two other props.
 
Inspiration
Why not take the opportunity to jazz up a village fete and attract people to an afternoon of games with this arch? A seaside theme would also be a perfect match, as this prop also draws inspiration from end-of-the-pier amusements.
 
As our fairground games are so popular, we thought we'd make some complementary items to enable you to create a complete mini-fairground set up. Alongside this arch, bunting poles, vintage signs and fencing bring the look together. We also have a funfair giant arrow as an alternative or the Red Curtain Arch for a slightly grander entrance.
