The Banbury Michaelmas Fair Starts 19 October 2016

banbury-fair-by-philip-peters

It will be heights, lights and frights, as the Michaelmas Fair makes its annual return to the Banbury town centre.

The Fair is a ‘Chartered’ street fair held each year for 3 nights in the centre of Banbury.

It has now become a popular tradition of the fair that the fairholder gives a ‘golden key’ to the Chairman of the Council who officially opens the fair. This takes place at 4.00pm on the Wednesday afternoon of fair week in front of Banbury Town Hall.

The Chairman and the Town Mayor of Banbury then tour the fair and the entourage of children who follow are given one free ride when each ride or carousel is struck with the ‘golden key’.

  • Date:Wednesday, 19 October 2016.
  • Time: 16:00 to 22:00
  • Venue: Banbury Town Centre

The carousels, rides and stalls provide entertainment and thrills for thousands of Banbury folk and visitors, and its the town’s largest street event in the year.

The fair will be primarily located in Horsefair, North Bar, Market Place and Bridge Street offering rides such as the carousel, waltzers and Froggit. There will also be opportunities to win prizes at various game stalls including hook-a-duck and coconut shys as well as the chance to pick up some candy floss or sweets at the food stands.

 

Willie Wilson presents the fair and draws together a good number of rides, a lot taking part on a number of the Back End Mop fairs around the Midlands.

The fair will run from 4pm on Wednesday, 19 October until late on Friday, 21 October.

Road closures and car parks affected by the fair will be closed from Tuesday, 18 October until the fair departs.

Banbury market will not operate on Thursday, 20 October but will return as normal on Saturday, 22 October.
