Celebrating 900 years since the Bishop of Hereford was granted the right to an annual fair, this illustrated talk by cathedral archivist Elizabeth Semper O’Keefe will pick out some of the highlights of nine centuries of history.

Find out how to open a medieval fair, discover what the Bishop spent the fair profits on, and what happens if you pick a fight during the time of the fair!

This online event will be hosted via Zoom on Thursday 27 May at 7pm, lasting around 1 hour. Tickets cost £5, booking is essential.
