RESIDENTS can be taken back to a Bromsgrove of days gone by tomorrow (Saturday) when the annual Elizabethan Fair Day takes place in the town centre.
The annual event has been organised by the ancient Court Leet, which will kick off proceedings with a procession, led by Bailiff Martin Connellan, from Housman Hall to the High Street.
There, it will be the Bailiff’s job to proclaim the charter granted to the town by King John in 1199 and test the bread, ale and leather is up to the standard expected for the people of Bromsgrove.
Back in days gone by, those traders who did not conform to expected standards were put in the stocks - another attraction added for tomorrow’s fair will see residents be able to put their friends and family members in the stocks for photographs.
There will be a host of Elizabethan-themed stalls in the High Street and there will be a prize for the best one.
For more on the event, contact Martin Connellan, the Bromsgrove Cobbler, Church Street
