Street food at the fair

This fair has a history.

It happens twice a year.

It started as a hiring fair in the reign of Edward lll (circa 1351) and the need to regulate manpower, matching workers with employers, after the Black Death greatly reduced the population of England.

Today it is a funfair that is held in the High Street for all the family to enjoy.
