A town’s annual fun fair has been cancelled due to poor weather.

Organisers of the traditional Kettering Feast Fun Fair have been forced to cancel the event in Northampton Road recreation ground, as the area is waterlogged.

The fair’s organisers have said they are hoping to reschedule the fair for later this summer.

A spokesman from John Thurston and son Ltd Fun Fairs said: “We would like to apologise to the public for any inconvenience caused, and also to the local shops and businesses whom have already posted the advertising posters for the Feast Fair.”

The traditional fair has been visiting the town in the summer for the past century, and usually attracts hundreds.
