Loughborough Markets and Fair 1221 – 2021

19 May 2022

Loughborough Library Local Studies Volunteer Group have published a new book commemorating last year’s 800th anniversary of Loughborough’s legal right to hold markets and fairs in the town.

Compiled by a number of members, each concentrating on a different aspect or historical period, the book contains research carried out by the group for the ‘Markets and Fairs’ exhibition in Charnwood Museum last Autumn, going into greater detail than the exhibition had room to display.

Copies are available for £9.99 from the Volunteers, who can be found running the Local Studies room at Loughborough Library on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between the hours of 10 am – noon and 2 pm – 4 pm.
