THE Michaelmas Fair will return to Newbury tonight.

Rides and stalls will roll up in Northcroft Park for the fair, organised by the Showman’s Guild of Great Britain.

It will open at 6pm tonight and run until Saturday. 

Wednesday will be half-price night and a firework display is planned for 9pm on Friday.

The fair dates back to the 17th century, when shepherds and maids turned up to seek work in the town, but is now a funfair.
