Appleby Fair is the highlight of the year for many Gypsy and Traveller people. Dating back hundreds of years its an opportunity to meet with family and friends, to trade horses, to chat and sing around the campfire and connect with with our roots. An often "rare opportunity to be yourself" and feel safe in the company of others.  

It's sad that this year it's had to be cancelled but obviously that's had to be the case. 

TT has dipped in the archive of photos old and new from the fair and asked people to share their memories. 

We'd love to hear YOUR best memories of the fair so please get in touch you can message us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and email us at travellerstimes@ruralmedia.co.uk
