History of Pembridge Woodcock Craft Fayre

Sep 26, 2023 | Events, Pembridge

During the Middle Ages, the Woodcock Fayre was a hiring fair held in November in Pembridge Market Hall and was an important place for agricultural labourers across the country to seek work from landowners. The practice carried on through the 19th and into the 20th Century and only ceased after the First World War.

Our modern-day Woodcock Fayre was reintroduced in 2016 and has grown since then. It is an opportunity to showcase the amazing wealth of crafts and craft people in our local area, together with the opportunity to trade – the foundation of our village of Pembridge.

More details can be found on the Pembridge Church Facebook page or view the event details here on website.
