May Fair returns to Hereford
3:07pm Monday 23rd April 2012 in News
THE OPENING ceremony of this year’s Hereford May Fair returns to its usual site after a two-year gap.
It takes place at 3.45pm on May 8 in Cathedral Close for the first time in two years, after refurbishment previously meant it was held elsewhere.
The annual three-day event will see thousands of people join in the festival fun, which includes exciting rides and food stalls as well as the ancient ceremony of wheat offering made by the Mayor of Hereford to the Lord Bishop.
Roads, including Widemarsh Street, St Owen’s Street, King Street and Bridge Street, will be closed between May 7 and the early hours of May 11.
