Description

One of the oldest fairs in the county is making its way to Cirencester in October as the town welcomes Nichols Amusements for the return of the annual Mop fair offering fairground rides and stalls.

Dating back to the 12th century, the Mop Fair takes its name from its original purpose, which was a hiring event, where servants carried the tools of their trade to show that they were available for work. In recent times Mop Fairs have become funfairs for the community to enjoy. Marshal Nichols' family have been bringing the Mop to Cirencester for generations and have worked closely with the Town Council to deliver the Mop each year.
