Trip Report Otley Victorian Fair, Yorkshire

Jump to last reply

On sunday, under a cloud heavy with rain, I went to one of the better Christmas fairs (12 to 6pm) in Yorkshire which was held in Otley a market town to the north of Leeds. The town centre was closed off and the stall holders dressed up in Victorian clothing to offer the visitors mulled wine, fruit breads and chestnuts. We had a whole load of steam driven barrel organs, a fair few mobile "fancy fair" circus rides and even the festive Samosas were brought out of the smaller of the curry houses.

I think the best part was the clog dancers and the many Morris men who turned up and danced up a storm on the cobbles while dogs ran for cover. The crowd were happy if a little merry and possibly overcome by too much pork by the end.

Morgana did you make it?
