From river frolics to dry land. This fair goes back to a Royal Charter in 1121. It has an interesting history and more information can be found here. The Bishop of Hereford was duly paid his rent in bushels of the best wheat and we very much enjoyed his acceptance speech. All the fun of the fair was there. The High Sheriff could not resist the candy floss but was able to resist the big wheel having become separated from the Mayor’s party which might otherwise have forced him to give it a go.
