Reach Fair 2018

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 to be held on Rogation Monday but has since been changed to the early May Bank Holiday so Reach Fair 2018 will be held on Monday 7th May - starting at midday and finishing at 5.00pm.

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

If you want to know more about the history of Reach and the Fair please have a look through our Reach Village website History pages.

The Fair is fun - with something for everyone - for more detail please go to our What's to Enjoy page - which shows you what was available at our 2017 Fair.
