Three Swans, Flyers and Drawing Pins

Today we have been busy finding places to display flyers for the forthcoming Market Harborough Vintage Fair on 6th August. The fair will 'pitch up' in The Three Swans Hotel, reputed to have been visited by King Charles 1 the day before the battle at Naseby in1645. 

The Three Swans dates back to the early 1500s
The Three Swans is situated on the High Street, the fair will be housed in the Cromwell Suite, a luxurious room found by walking through the arch and down through the pretty courtyard area. 


Beautiful  18th Century Wrought Iron Work
Market Harborough has many interesting buildings and there are lots of places to eat, shop and have a drink. A friend of the fair has commented that posting flyers allows one to visit some lovely tea-shops and today was no exception!


The Old Grammar School built in 1614
After the inevitable calorie overload we headed out of Market Harborough itself to explore some of the beautiful surrounding villages. We left flyers on village notice boards and in village shops.  We headed home through further pretty villages jumping out here and there to pin another flyer on a board. Hopefully our work will pay off and the good people of Market Harborough and Lecicestershire will turn out to support the fair.
