Memories of the fair from the past half century are now on show at the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon

A new exhibition covering the past 50 years of Barnstaple Fair is now open.

All the Fun of the Fair was officially opened on Saturday at the Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon by the Mayor, Julie Hunt and consort David Hunt.

Put together in conjunction with the Barnstaple Fair Heritage Trust, it features memorabilia, pictures and recollections of the fair.

Mrs Hunt said: “I think everyone needs to come and see it. It’s one of the best I have seen, it’s absolutely amazing and credit to George and Mel Lovering and all the committee members.”

The exhibition runs until September 24 and is open daily 10am-5pm.
