Warrington Guardian: Oliver Wong with Shabby Jakes one man band Oliver Wong with Shabby Jakes one man band

AN age old tradition brought in the start of December as shoppers were able to pick up some unique festive treats.


The St Andrew’s Day Festival is a traditional event which was restored last year with events around the town centre.


There were fairground rides, Dr Who memorabilia and music from performers who took up spots across the main streets.

One of Warrington's two annual fairs held since the 13th century.
"Traditional" enough for you?

Serious question, Can something still be declared a "Tradition" if it has not seen the light of day for over 100 years?

It ran last year and they announced that they were restoring a traditional event. I don't read in this that they're trying to fool anyone...unlike that shocking Werthers Original commercial that tried to say my grandad gave them to me as a child.
