Loughborough’s Royal Chartered Fair will not go ahead this year. However we plan to mark the Charter and count down to 2021 when the Charter for the fair will have been in existence for 800 years.

About the Loughborough Fair

Fairs have been held in Loughborough for centuries, the first official Charter being granted to the Lord of the Manor, Hugh le Despencer, in 1221 by King Henry III. The Fair was then held on St. Peter’s Day and, assuming it has been held annually, will have been coming to the town for 797 years.

Approximately 100 individual show people attend each year, presenting between them some 20 large rides, numerous children's roundabouts, game and novelty stalls, and the usual popular refreshment stands.
