GOOSE FAIR 2013

Goose Fair is a happy place

The noise is loud and shrill

And people come from miles around

Looking for a thrill

By riding on the dodgems, the rocket and the wheel

Or even of the carousels Made of wood and steel

There’s sideshows there to entertain

With freaks that are quite funny

And there are many things to eat

That,s if you’ve got the money

The lights shine bright, the music plays

The swings go up and down

And everyone in Radford knows

The fair has come to town

In the year 2005 the fair was extended 

To include Wednesday and Sunday as well

But the fair is still opened at Thursday noon

When the lord mayor rings his bell

The council maintain that this good for the economy

But for some it can be source of disruption and misery

For we should remember the fair is a noisy and raucous affair

Which is not always appreciated by all those who live near

So if you visit and enjoy the attractions of the fair

Think about the residents who suffer disruption at this time every year

Goose Fair


It it’s October,
It must be Goose Fair!
Around more than 700 years.
This year, started Wednesday, ended Sunday,
An extra day!
Funfair rides never seen before
Thrill ride favourites
The Enterprise, the Observation Wheel, closed gondolas,
Helter Skelter, carousel rides, Waltzers, Ferris wheel,
The Roller.
Enjoy stalls, treats, burgers, mushy peas, even chips.
Fun for everyone
A big loud festival.
