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.
