Who’s going to Goose Fair then? For those customers of ours that are not from Nottingham, then we don’t actually sell Geese at the fair anymore, but it goes back to the 13th Century when geese where driven to Nottingham in the autumn. It used to be held in Slab Square but was moved to The Forest Recreation Ground and is now host to hundreds of rides. More about the details of Goose Fair can be found on the Nottingham City Council Website
But you can’t put smells on a website……yet! and Goose Fair has it’s own evocative aroma. A heady mixture of toffee apples, burgers, candy floss, adrenaline, ozone and exhaust fumes….It’s nicer than it sounds, honest.
