Welcome to the Wivenhoe May Fair website


Early 80s pre May Fair

Before the May Fair made it to it's long established home on the King George V playing fields, an early forerunner was happening in the early 80s in the fields behind The Flag pub at the top of the village. The fields are now flats, but perhaps you can remember when it was all fields...

Also included are pics of some hairy participants of the Wivenhoe Pram Race, an ancient village tradition which has been going as long as the May Fair.
