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.

Lets hope all the ESG workers have finished by then, not sure how they, the fair and the all year round workers/shoppers will fit into Merton Meadow car park this year. Good news is, that next year they wont be disturbing any shops in high town. Perhaps Maylords could be converted to a permanent fair ?

Why? Is the May Fair finishing?
As for 'ESG' (is it still called that?) I know for a fact their staff have spent tens of thousands of pounds in this city.
Be grateful!
