Reach Fair


In 1201 King John granted a charter for the holding of a fair in Reach and it has taken place ever since, year by year, through the good times and the not so good times.

It was originally held on Rogation Monday but has since been changed to the early May Bank Holiday - our next Reach Fair will take place on Monday May 6th 2024.

According to original custom, it will be opened by the Mayor of Cambridge accompanied by the Aldermen in full regalia and penny coins will be thrown to visitors in the crowd.

The Fair is fun - with something for everyone - for more detail please go to our What's to Enjoy page        

And below is our 2023 Programme, to give you an idea of what the Fair is all about.

This website will be updated in the latter part of 2023 in readiness for our 2024 Fair.
