Roll up for the fair

07 Apr 2017

Our museum would love to hear from anyone who has memories of the Charter Fair or could lend them models or objects, for an exhibition this summer.

Perhaps you still have a prize you won? Or a picture of you or your family at the fair?

The exhibition is part of a countywide project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and will look at the Charter Fair’s history since King Edward I granted the town a charter to hold a fair in 1281.

If you can help, please get in touch with the museum on 01438 218881 or email
