"Such an important event for the town held annually with the 900th anniversary in 2025, and thought to be one of the oldest fairs in England, it is always extremely popular. It’s fantastic to see that the chance to win the golden ticket is available once again and I look forward to seeing who the lucky winner is this year.”
