On Monday 13th September, Tor Fair will open at its new location in Herbies Field (BA6 9LE). It is understood that Tor Fair is the second longest continually running fair in the country, having not missed for 824 years. Henry Chipperfield is the main organiser of the Fair and his family have been involved since 1946.
The town council acknowledges the support residents and businesses in and around St Johns car park have given over the past two years, when the temporary location of the fair at this location was used. This allowed the continuity of the fair through what proved to be a very difficult time. The town council welcomes the fair on to Herbies Feld and wishes the organisers the very best of luck for a successful event.
