Bewdley’s unique annual Cherry Fair will take place this weekend in Worcestershire.

The town has been famous for its cherry fairs for almost two centuries and over the weekend all things cherry will be celebrated once again.

There is a chance to taste and compare different varieties of cherries. Young cherry trees will be for sale and bags of cherries will be available to buy.

“This is a free family event with something for everyone. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate the history of the town and we’re encouraging visitors to come along in 1940s costumes too.”

– Councillor Sally Chambers, Wyre Forest District Council
