Thousands of travellers roll into town for horse fair

Leamington Editorial 1st Aug, 2017   0

THOUSANDS of travellers rolled into town for the year’s second Kenilworth Horse Fair.

Visitors from across the country flocked to the annual fair held on privately-owned land near the Thickthorn roundabout, with many turning up a week before the event on Saturday and Sunday.

There was a high police presence in the area but no arrests were made, although some incidents of anti-social behaviour and minor criminal damage were reported.

Officers were drafted from neighbouring towns but a force spokesman said no extra police were needed to cope with the event.

The next fair will take place on the weekend of September 22.
