November Meeting

Kay Townsend, a member of a long established family of Showmen, gave a fascinating talk on Fairgrounds during the war years. She told us that fairs were allowed to continue during the wars to keep up morale. There were restrictions on times and lighting but people could enjoy enjoy the fairs and forget their worries for a short time.

She has written several books on various aspects of the Showmen’s lives, having done a lot of research on the subject.

A very enjoyable evening !
