proved to be a special fair. Several rides, including Webbs' dramatic Voyager, made their
first appearance to Boston. Bishton's brand new set of Gallopers, the first to be built
for many years, was officially dedicated at the fair. Brilliant sunshine made the
traditional opening ceremony, with many local Mayors in attendance, a memorable sight.
The camera followed the event throughout the week, from
the arrival of the first lorries and the build-up of rides to the final pull-down and
departure. The video includes exclusive day and night footage of the fair taken from the
top of the famous Boston 'Stump'.
