14th July 2018 all-day
Tiverton EX16

A day of fun merriment live music and street crafts in Tiverton town centre.

In 1257 King Henry III granted a three-day Charter Fair to Tiverton to be held around the Feast of St James in July. This was a time of prosperity, country folk brought their wares to the market on foot and horse-back in pannier baskets. Street entertainers and musicians came to make a farthing or two playing to the crowds. Dancing bears excited the crowd and Tiverton taverns sold copious ale in jugs from barrels.

The Tiverton Portas Company is planning to re-create the excitement of this Medieval Fayre, minus the dancing bears, but with an additional 21st century flair. This Medieval Fayre is being held for the first time this year with an aim to make this an annual event for Tiverton Town. So come and join the fun!

Tano will be back again this year performing 3 sets throughout the day, along with some have-a-go sessions.
