Statutes Fair

History of the Statutes Fair

The Burton Statutes Fair has been running in some shape or form for many centuries. It takes place in the autumn of each year on the first Monday and Tuesday after Michaelmas – usually starting on the first Monday in October.

Over the years it has changed from a primarily hiring fair, where labourers were hired for the coming year, to the amusement fair that we have today.

The 2019 Statutes Fair will take place on Monday 30th September and Tuesday 1st October.
