It was a sizzler in every meaning of the word! With clear blue skies and thousands of visitors, The Street Fair was busy all day long.
We had over 1000 visitors to our exhibition which was tucked away in the south aisle of St James Church. There was a continuous stream of visitors, and the space became quite crowded at times. Thanks to our stewards who were dressed in 18th century costume which added atmosphere to our displays.
Our most travelled visitors to our exhibition are from Melbourne, Australia. They planned their visit to England over a year before to coincide with the Street Fair.
Our youngest visitor was under one year old. His parents were much interested in the exhibition and let’s hope the young lad will be a historian someday.
We made plenty of new contacts, including some with Milton Abbas ancestors, which will keep us busy over the next few weeks contacting them by email.
