Burton Statutes.

The Statutes Fair is an amusements fair held in Burton On Trent annually on the first Monday and Tuesday after Michaelmas. The fair has been held since 1219 & was originally a hiring fair, with employers giving a symbolic shilling to employees contracted for the following year, amusement stalls soon started to be added as a means of persuading the employees to spend their shillings. The event is now entirely an amusements fair & has ran in a reduced form, through the Second World War and COVID-19 pandemic.
