Tavistock Goosey Fair

Tavistock Goosey Fair

The annual Goose Fair in Tavistock dates back to the early 12th Century. The name Goose Fair probably came about as farmers brought their geese ready for fattening for Christmas.Market traders come from all over the country to sell their wares and provide entertainment. this year there were over 250 Stalls and side shows in the centre of the Town. This year was my first time at a Goosey Fair, here are a few of my images of the day.
