St Giles' Fair

Monday 9th - Tuesday 10th September 2019

St Giles' Fair dates back to 1625 when it was a parish festival to celebrate the feast of the patron saint, St Giles. In the 18th century it was a toy fair, then in the early 19th century it was a general children’s fair. The funfair grew during mid and late Victorian times. This year's fair is on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th September.
