   About Gallagher's


Michael and Andrea Gallagher married in 1991 and have 4 children; Michael jnr, Maxwell and twin girls Maddison and Desiree. The marriage brought together two widely respected travelling showmen families, the Gallagher's and the Wallis's.

The Gallagher's


Michael can trace his family's roots back over 100 years and, although they have always been members of the Yorkshire Section of the Showmen's Guild, they travel all over the North East of England and Yorkshire.


Michael's maternal uncle John C. Culine was awarded the MBE in the Queen's 2007 New Year's Honours list "for services to the Showmen's Guild of Great Britain and to the community in Spennymoor, County Durham".


'Johnny', besides being the former Mayor of Spennymoor, is involved in several community projects and has been a long-serving member on the Committee of the Showmen's Guild's Northern Section where he is currently the Secretary.




The Wallis's


Andrea's family have been serving the public for over seven generations; with the Wallis name being synonymous with travelling funfairs in Lancashire and the North West as well as several countries worldwide.


Andrea's father David Wallis senior is the Vice-President of the Showmen's Guild of Great Britain and has played an important role in bringing the Guild into the 21st Century.


David is also a Trustee of The Fairground Heritage Trust, a voluntary organisation whose aims are to preserve historic fairground equipment, imagery and memorabilia for future generations to enjoy.



With links throughout the whole of the North of England and Europe in addition to countries as far afield as Dubai, South Africa and Hong Kong; it's easy to see why Gallagher's should be the first choice for all of your funfair requirements.
