The St Crispin’s Street Fair will be in Northampton town centre later this month and there will be a number of road closures as a result.

Organised by fairground owner Albert Evans and supported by Northampton Borough Council, the event will run from Sunday 27 October until Tuesday 29 October and will be situated on Gold Street, Mercer’s Row, Market Square and Abington Street.

For the duration of the fair, Gold Street, Mercer’s Row, Dychurch Lane and the bottom of Abington Street will be the only roads closed to traffic. Gold Street and Mercer’s Row will be closed from 6pm on Saturday 26 October until 6am on Wednesday 30 October and Dychurch Lane and Abington Street will also be closed to traffic from Sunday 27 October until 6am on Wednesday 30 October.

Other changes being made will include the location of the taxi rank, which is usually situated on Mercer’s Row, being temporarily moved to George Row from 6pm on Saturday 26th October and amendments to the layout of the rides on Gold Street, Abington Street, Mercer’s Row and on the Market Square, which will help improve pedestrian access and minimise disruptions to market traders and businesses.

Cllr Brandon Eldred said that certain changes had been made to accommodate this year’s fair after receiving feedback from local businesses. He said: “With the return of St Crispin’s Fair for the second year running, we have asked the organisers to work closely with town centre businesses to find out how we can make this year’s fair work for them as we help attract more visitors to Northampton.”

The fair opening times are Sunday 12pm to 10.30pm and Monday and Tuesday 10.00am to 10.30pm.
