Quenington Fair – CANCELLED

Following complaints centred on the unusually early arrival of the fair (10 days in advance of opening) and its dominant layout on the Green, it had been agreed that the presence of the fair would be discussed at the Quenington Parish Council meeting on Thursday 8 Sept. During that day, the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and subsequent advice from the Government (Operation London Bridge), indicated that public events should be curtailed if not cancelled during the period of mourning leading up to the funeral, estimated to take place on D+10 (in effect Monday 19 Sept, with the fair’s last performance the afternoon before).
At the meeting, which no members of the public attended to make their case, for or against, it was decided that the best course would be to discuss with the fair operator whether to cancel this year’s event given the period of national mourning. Following this discussion, it was mutually agreed not to run the fair this year and we look forward to welcoming the fair back next year.
