Landscape (UK) - - October Events -

11-12 Oc­to­ber

in the past, farm work­ers, labour­ers, ser­vants and crafts­men would work from oc­to­ber to oc­to­ber, at­tend­ing the Mop Fair at the end of their em­ploy­ment. they would be dressed in their sun­day best and would carry an item sig­ni­fy­ing their trade. ser­vants with no par­tic­u­lar skills would carry a mop head. to­day, the Mop Fair is a plea­sure fair, with tra­di­tional rides and en­ter­tain­ment, re­main­ing a key date in the War­wick­shire cal­en­dar. www.vis­it­strat­fordupon­avon.co.uk
