Shoppers had a merrie olde time at Sittingbourne’s Mops Fair
For the second year running Sittingbourne’s High Street was transformed with a host of stalls, fun fair rides and naturally a lot of people in medieval costume.
The fair is something of a surreal combination of past and present with the lights and sounds of fun fair rides intertwined with medieval themed entertainment and the opportunity to peruse a variety of craft and food stalls.
Entertainment was provided throughout the day curtsey of A Merrie Noyse, Big Fish Arts, Jester Johnny Slap and Mickey the Magician.
Plus there was the opportunity to consult the Medieval Wise Women who is actually an genuine authority on Medieval medicine. Accompanying the Medieval Wise Women, was the Caladrius Bird, which according to the Roman mythology, is a snow-white bird that lives in kings' houses.
Supposedly, the bird refuses to look at any patient who is not going to make a full recovery. I guess that means I'm going to be ok right?
Sittingbourne Retail Association event regulars Sara Seabridge, Andrea Don, Julie Major, Chris Swain and Town Crier Richard Spooner were also out and about as usual keeping the event ticking along.
