To raise funds during the First World War, Mansfield held a Patriotic Fair on 22-23 June 1917. Here is the official opening, attended by the Mayor, C.E. Stacey, at the bandstand in Titchfield Park. The fair's souvenir programme was illustrated and partly written by art college principal A.S. Buxton, later a co-founder of the Old Mansfield Society.
Official fun !
