Forget the Beast from the East: it’s our Best from the Easter

Organisers across the country gear up for what they hope is a fine bank holiday weekend

The Easter holiday weekend is one of the busiest in the fairs and markets calendar and organisers will be offering up a prayer to the gods for good weather, particularly those who run showground events.

In mid-March, the Easter weather forecast in assorted news media ranged from the “coldest Easter in history” to “bone chilling Britain.”

However, the Met Office informs us that the first holiday of the year often coincides with some “springlike weather” and forecasts much milder days “with temperatures expected to reach highs of 9C in parts of the country”.

Here are a few fairs to whet the appetite over Easter.

Lincolnshire show

Arthur Swallow Fairs is anticipating more than 1000 exhibitors at its Easter Antiques and Home Show at the Lincolnshire Showground on Monday and Tuesday, April 2-3. The organiser is running a ticket offer on the website for £15 for the Monday, only if pre-booked.
