St. Wilfrid's Fair

What an amazing weekend, Stockport has not seen the like for many a year.

The St. Wilfrid's medieval fair was put on to celebrate 750 years of a market charter and what a fair it was. Words cannot describe the atmosphere created by medieval cooking, music, apothecaries, basket weaving, wattle and daub, a torture master and even a dragon.

The grand finale was a most spectacular fire show and fireworks to music.

The crowds flocked in their thousands and the market buzzed as it has not done for a very long time.

Thank you Stockport for a fair that will be long remembered.
