Since the early middle ages, fairs have been held in Dundee; opportunities for traders to display their wares, entertainers to perform and ordinary citizens to relax and enjoy themselves. But the fairs also led to disorder and violence, and by the early Twentieth Century, the local authorities were looking for ways to abolish them.

Ian McGraw tells the story of Dundee Fairs over eight centuries, and from local archive and record materials reveals a fascinating picture of the Lady Mary's Fair, Stobb's Fair and the rivalry between the Constable of Dundee and the Burgh Council who tried to control them.
