Roll up, roll up - the Hereford May Fair is coming back
12:18pm Thursday 17th April 2014 in News
PLANS are underway for this year's May Fair in Hereford.
The three-day event from May 6-8 will once again see a number of white-knuckle rides, side shows and food stalls with up to 200 showmen entertaining fairgoers.
"Showmen from all over the UK will provide excitement, fun and laughter from riding the heart-stopping white knuckle rides to bumper to bumper fun and not forgetting the thrills of the children and traditional rides," said Abie Danter, chairman of the South Wales and Northern Ireland Section of The Showman’s Guild.
A ceremonial offering of 12 and a half bushels of wheat made by the Mayor of Hereford to the Lord Bishop will take place at 3.45pm on the Tuesday at Cathedral Close to commemorate the opening.
Commercial Street, High Town, St Peters Street, St Owen Street, King Street, Bridge Street and part of Broad Street will be closed during the three days, while Widemarsh Street and Bewell Street will see closures in place from 4.30pm to 11pm.
However, two-way systems will be in place along Gwynne Street and Berrington Street.
