Fairground collage

The National Fairground Archive is celebrating 20 years since its opening at the heart of the Western Bank Library.

Inaugarated by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Sheffield in 1994, with support of the Showmen's Guild of Great Britain and the Fairground Association of Great Britain, the NFA is a unique collection of material covering all aspects of the culture and history of travelling fairs and entertainment from the 1800's to the present day.
