Bungay May Horse Fair
A unique two-day event in rural Suffolk, an opportunity for locals and countercultural types to return to rural community living.
From the collection of:
The first Bungay Horse Fair held at Mettingham Castle in May 1976. One of the East Anglian Fairs that ran during the 1970s, another being Barsham Fair. These fairs became a significant feature in the Suffolk calendar, a place for travellers, new agers, and locals to gather. The East Anglian Fairs, later called the Albion Fairs, were a hybrid of a music festival and a centre of interest for rural community living. Captured on 8mm Kodachrome by amateur filmmaker Mr A. Taberham.
