What is it?
Historically, at the end of August, Carlisle residents would dress up and enjoy an open air market known as the ‘Carlisle Great Fair’. In keeping with this old tradition, Tullie House Museum will be hosting a Victorian Summer Fair.
Entertainment will include Punch and Judy, a jester, face-painting, ferret racing and morris dancing. There will also be a tombola, champagne and strawberries, a bran tub, a hiring fair, and stocks. For the more creative visitors there will be Victorian lavender bag making, craft activities and craft stalls.
