Colourful, boisterous and often bawdy, the old-time fairs punctuated the routine of the year like exploding stars in the firmament. They were also a vital part of England's economy.

This comprehensive and readable study examines a long-neglected subject and its impact on trade and everyday lives. The book traces the fair's history from early Saxon times to the present day, examining why today's fairs  are based purely on entertainment rather than trade.

For all lovers of steam and fairgrounds.
