Hull Fair starts in 2 weeks, it's the biggest travelling fair in the world, and dates back hundreds of years, put "Hull Fair" in your searcher to see about it.

I must have done something wrong. I got all kinds of stuff about hellfire. Mostly Christian sites of one sort or another, but also a couple about racing and one that belongs to a band. Will any of that be happening at the Hull Fair?

ah Sir jOhn,

I love that "Little Gawk"!

I did as you suggested, plugged "Hull Fair" into Google, and the first hit listed was from (of all things) the Mathematical Association Humberside Branch, with its proud page about Hull Fair:

Hull Fair is one of Europe's largest travelling fun fairs. It gathers for 8 days in October to offer a huge combination of carousels, fairground stalls, rides and side shows.

Choose from:-
Facts and Figures [link]        Pictures and Questions [link]

Being a facts & figures kind of guy, I clicked that link, but what did I find? A table with nothing in it. How informative....

Going to the Pictures and Queestions link, I found a pic of a ride called a helter-skelter (I'm from California, so I dunno wot dat is).
Next to the picture was the following:
    £1 per ride.
   1. Estimate the height of the ride. (Hint: Use the person collecting money.)
   2. Draw a plan view of the helter-skelter.
   3. How many times do you go round the helter-skelter as you go down?
   4. If it takes a child about 4 seconds to go from top to bottom, how much does it cost per second on the ride?
   5. If the slide was made straight, about how long would it be?
   6. (Advanced) Estimate the child's speed as the bottom is reached.

After that, my head started to hurt.

I hope the Hull Fair is more fun than that.

Regards,

doug

We were always told that the Nottingham Goose Fair (next weekend) was the biggest. But then, Robin Hood was ours also and not an airport near Doncaster!

Embarrassing but true: I too have a "pet" spider. A huge brown spider very cleverly built her web over my mailbox and under the porch light last June. When I turn on the porch light, she feasts on assorted flying things. I was afraid I had lost her to a wind/rain storm a few weeks ago but she came back, repaired her damaged web, and went on with life. Winter is coming. I imagine she will die but hopefully one of the fifty million babies that hatched out of her nest (that was a rude surprise in and on the mailbox) will choose this same spot next year. I haven't named her. She is a bit too dignified to be written off as a pet.

Sooz - I lived in Nottingham a long while ago, and it was always (sadly) admitted that Hull was bigger. If I remember correctly all the rides etc from Nottingham went to Hull, and were joined en route by several small fairs.

But ours was a Goose Fair, which we kids knew was somehow better.

been there done that, bigger but apart from the largest rides appearing several times and the advent of the flight simulator type of "experiences" I didn't see much I haven't seen at the Tewkesbury Mop Fair or Chipping Sodbury or St Giles Fair in Oxford. Just more of it.

I didn't see two caravans sporting the real Gyspy Rose Lee telling anybody's fortune, Oxford, at least had two Rose Lea's at opposite ends of the street.

Hull Fair is more like a car park. I seem to remeber a lot of tarmac.

It's at the Walton Street Fairground on the west side of Hull. It opens up slowly from about 12noon until about midnight. Parking may be a bit of a problem, you can't park in the streets nearby. But you should be able to park within a few streets. As far as I know it's all this next week.

when I went I walked about 10 minutes from the car, across the level crossing and there it was. You can't miss it - follow everone else.

Now when is Tavistock Goosey fair?

Closely following Hull Fair is Halloween which is another event Hull excells at. There's usually no need to dress up for it!
