Goose Fair Experience



The time is upon us,

An atmosphere of excitement fills the air

Waiting for that convoy of vehicles

To start assembling Nottingham Goose Fair


In a matter of hours they start to assemble.

Like a jigsaw all has its place

A city of activity and manpower

Of steel erected at a furious pace


When all the construction has been completed

Transforming the whole area with light

The lord mayor of Nottingham presides

Ringing the bell, to the eyes it’s a wonderful sight


The sound of the music, and rides

All the people milling around

The excitement is tremendous

As they all ride the merry go round


The terrifying rides are an attraction

For those who dare to try

Spinning them all around

As in the night sky they fly


The kiddies enjoy themselves

On gentler rides at a slow pace

You know that they love the ride

By just looking at their face


There is candyfloss and balloons

Mushy peas and jellied eels

Everyone are enjoying themselves

For in the distance you can hear the squeals


So if you are ever visiting Nottingham

You must experience Nottingham Goose Fair

It’s an experience you’ll never forget

You then can tell your friends you were there
