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 2020 Statutes Fair has been postponed due to concerns over public health as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
