The famous Tewkesbury Mop Fair is the largest street fair in Gloucestershire with fun fair, fairground rides, traditional games, sideshows, stalls and attractions in Tewkesbury town centre. 
The Tewkesbury Mop Fair dates back to 12th century when farm hands, labourers, servants and craftsmen looking for work, would take along a piece of equipment to represent their trade. Those with no specific skills would carry a mop head to signify they were free for work, hoping a prospective employer would spot them in the crowds
