One of Bishop’s Castle’s most popular events will return later this year for the first time in three years - the Michalemas Fair.

Last year’s official event was cancelled as a mark of respect following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Now organisers are calling for people to share ideas and volunteer their help for this year’s event which will take place on September 16.

The Michaelmas Committee said: "It was brilliant how the community pulled together at such short notice last year and we'd love to recreate that again but with a little more organisation.

"So we are inviting all the businesses, clubs, creators and townspeople to showcase themselves, share ideas and be a part of the day.

"Whether you are a club and have members that would like to perform, volunteer or hold a stall. Or you have a business, and you'd like to expand onto the street, maybe you live in Bishop's Castle and you just want to help or share your thoughts, we'd love to hear from you.

"Thank you for your continued support."

The public meeting will take place at The Six Bells on Monday, April 17, at 7.30pm.

The Michaelmas Fair was first set up in 1995 by a small group of local people after the steam fair relocated from Bishop's Castle to Shrewsbury, its website said.

The fair was always held on August Bank Holiday so it was decided to hold this new event in mid September.

Traditionally, the Michaelmas Fair was at the end of the harvest when farm workers were looking for their next contract and rents had to be paid.

Over the years the Michaelmas Fair has grown into one of the biggest in the area but what impressess most visitors is the wide range of entertainment, there really is something for everyone.
