Statement from Warwick District Council Chief Executive, Chris Elliott
“We are aware of rumours circulating that the Kenilworth Horse Fair will be taking place at Thickthorn from 25 to 28 April. We would like to state categorically that the Trustees of the Thickthorn site for the horse fair have confirmed that they have not given permission for the event to take place and that no permission has been sought or given by Warwick District Council for the fair to take place on any other site in Kenilworth or the surrounding area.
“To avoid disappointment and unnecessary travel we therefore urge people not to arrive in Kenilworth over the last weekend in April on the speculation that the horse fair is taking place. Under the agreement made last year following the September event, there will no longer be a horse fair held in Kenilworth on the site at Thickthorn.”
