The Fair included medieval activities of all kinds, many in period costume: Medieval Crafts & Food - Pig Roast & Ale - Pottery - Calligraphy - Basket Making - Illuminated Manuscripts - Jewellery - Stained Glass - Candle Sticks - Morris Dancing - Soap - Minstrels - Spinning - Jesters - Bee Keeping - Bell Ringing & Hand Bells - Herbs & Plants - Abbey Exhibition - Flower Posies - Children's Activities - Corn Dolls - Paintings - Art Competition.

The Eynsham Abbey Millennium Badge, designed by Dorothy Berry and made by Thomas Fattorini of Birmingham, is still available @ £2 from Evenlode DIY in the High Street.
