Michaelmas Fair Returns To Abingdon

"The Fairs provide an opportunity for people to meet up and enjoy the attractions which are brought to town.

"The Fairs are also an important milestone in the town’s year, heralding the start of autumn and darker evenings which show the attractions lit up in their full glory.”
