Stevenage Charter Fair historic photo

All the Fun of the Fair

Opens 22 July til 28 October 2017

Step right up to find out more about Stevenage’s annual Charter Fair.

Dating back to 1281, and held every year since, the Charter Fair is very much part of the towns history. Our upcoming exhibition will tell the story of the fair through the years. Watch footage from the early Victorian fairs, listen to the memories from Stevenage residents, who attended the fair in the 50’s and 60’s plus photography and paintings from some of the more recent years. Learn more about the types of rides and stalls they would have had at the fair including how the fair kept running through the war years.
