Forest Recreation Ground
FREE entry

Enjoy all the fun of the fair at the Forest Recreation Ground this autumn, as Goose Fair returns from Friday 29 September to Sunday 8 October.

With more than 250 rides and attractions and thrills aplenty for all ages, Goose Fair is one of the largest travelling funfairs in Europe and has been staged annually in Nottingham since at least 1284.

New rides this year include the TipTop and Xcelerator, as well as lots of returning favourites such as Reverse Bungee, Ice Jet Matterhorn, Star Flyer, and two giant wheels giving panoramic views across the fair and the city beyond. All the Goose Fair classics will also be in attendance such as The Skid, Gallopers and the Cake Walk – the only ride still operating that featured when the fair was held at Old Market Square – plus lots of side-show games such as hook-a-duck and basketball.

Food is always a highlight at the fair and along with the traditional fairground favourites of mushy peas, Grantham gingerbread and Cock-on-a-Stick, visitors will be able to eat their way around the world with a diverse range of food from Greek and Caribbean to Panjabi cuisines.
