Couldn't resist it!
The Nottingham Goose Fair is an annual fun fair held in Nottingham, UK, during the first week of October.
It is largely provided by travelling fair people.
The consensus among historians is that the fair probably started just after 1284, when the Charter of King Edward I referred to city fairs in Nottingham. The Goose Fair was cancelled due to the bubonic plague in 1646 and again during the two World Wars in the 20th century.
