Successful 2015 Michaelmas Fair

We have had an extremely busy weekend here in Bishops Castle with the Annual Michaelmas Fair, the sun shone all day and thousands of people turned our to enjoy the day. Attractions included a team of ‘bubbleologists’ who fascinated younger visitors with their giant buggle creations. There was also live music and dancing, processions of vintage vehicles, street theatre, exotic animals, food and drink and art workshops .
A life-size puppet elephant opened the event on Saturday, which also saw steam engines and tractors, Morris dancing, owls and alpacas, local ales, samba dancing and have-a-go puppetry.
As night fell there was a lantern procession followed by Peet the Fool’s Fire Show as the finale and music on the Town Hall stage.
Here at The Castle Hotel we had Live Music from The Beez Kneez which went down a treat with visitors, our lovely garden was full of people enjoying the sunshine, music and some of the best food and drink around!
So make sure you book your rooms early for next years Michaelmas fair its definitely not to be missed!
