Forest Field, Nottingham.

Sejarah Goose Fair yang tengah hot kat padang sekarang. 

The fair dates back more than 700 years and was once said to be Europe's biggest. The consensus among historians is that the fair probably started just after 1284, when the Charter of King Edward I referred to city fairs in Nottingham. Until 1928 it was held in Old Market Square in Nottigham city centre, but it was moved because of redevelopment of the area.

The Goose Fair started as a trade event and enjoyed a reputation for its high-quality cheese, although it is now known for its rides and games. Its name is derived from the thousands of geese that were driven from Lincolnshire to be sold in Nottingham.

Originally, the fair was held in September on 21 September, but in 1752, with the change to the Gregorian calendar, it moved to early October. The duration of the fair was shortened from eight days to three days in the 1800s.

Nottingham Goose Fair is considered by most to be one of the most prestigious fairs in the UK.

It is now held at the Forest Recreation Ground. After the turn of the 21st century its length was increased again to four days, for the 700th anniversary, and was kept like this afterwards.
