Goose Fair 3:30

In 2012 I attended Nottingham’s Goose Fair and shot a continuous time lapse take of the people, rides, lights and stalls. Later, using Microsoft Movie Maker, I added music by  British jazz legend Johnny Dankworth. Using the same software, I tidied the whole thing up with some captions and a little advert at the end for a couple of Kindle local history guides I’ve written.

Goose Fair is a long-held tradition in Nottingham. It’s thought to date from around 1285 when it was essentially a huge market, but over the years has become a maelstrom of rollercoasters, junk food, fireworks and neon.
