The annual fixture that dates back centuries is back again
Dodgems, rollercoasters, candy floss, oh my! Midsummer Fair is back for its annual instalment between 21 and 26 June, when it’ll be turning Midsummer Common once again into a loud and colourful playground for the whole family to enjoy. One of the oldest and largest events of its kind in the country, this ancient fair dates back to 1211, when it was granted a Royal Charter by King John.
As ever, there will be loads of top funfair rides plus an array of traditional market stalls selling everything from china to clothes and shoes. There’ll also be loads of tasty treats to enjoy including warm toffee apples and hot dogs. The fair is open until 11pm daily, except on Sunday when it closes at 9pm.
