Image showing the cover of The March Edition of the Fairground Mercury

The June edition of The Fairground Mercury has been posted to all members of the Fairground Association of Great Britain.

We have devoted a large portion of this 40-page, full-colour quarterly journal to a celebration of the life and work of the acclaimed fairground decorator, Paul Wright, who died in March this year following a long illness. Many examples of his highly imaginative and astonishingly executed work are shown, together with tributes from many of his colleagues and customers.

This edition also includes: tributes to several other fairground personalities who have left us recently; the longest list of machine changes in three months we have ever recorded; historic photographs of Hereford May Fair; the chronicles of the enterprising Scarrotts of Northamptonshire; and many more things.

If you would like to obtain this edition and the next three issues please send a subscription fee of £15 (OAPs and under 16s, £12) to Lynn Calladine, FAGB Membership Secretary, 29 Mill Street, Belper, Derbyshire DE56 1DT. Payment should be made out to FAGB and please enclose a small SAE for the despatch of your membership card. Should you be overseas please add a supplement of £5 to the subscription as a contribution to air mail costs. You can also pay by PayPal.
