Northam May Fair

This has to be the most enjoyable fete that I have ever attended –  crowds of happy relaxed people of all ages, and masses of fun things to do and see. Real community spirit.

And of course, it was the day  my camera display read: MEMORY CARD FULL, just as I was lining up to get a shot of a huge medieval warrior making his way through the crowd whilst carrying a large tray of around 20 cups of tea.  I gave up trying to take photos at this point – but here are a few snippets to give you a flavour of the day.


I wrote about the May Fair here a couple of years ago, when I believe the event had just been revived.  Brilliant!

About throughstones

I am primarily a visual artist, living on the North Devon coast, a beautiful semi-rural area in South West England. I am interested in full engagement with 'place' and the eternal movement of life - particularly as it relates to what we call 'the natural environment'.

  1. Sounds like a wonderful event full of local flavors…like the gentleman riding his steam tractor!
