Limited Edition Print and Poem
Size: 21cm x 28cm (approx)
|Following the success of
last year's publication, Houghton
Feast: The Ancient Festival of Houghton-le-Spring, local author
Paul Lanagan has produced a limited edition lithograph print featuring
the Houghton Feast Lake fairground in 1914.
Each print is individually numbered and is an ideal gift. As an added bonus, the reverse of each print features a recently uncovered Houghton Feast poem. Written in 1872, the poem depicts the Houghton Feast events at the time. These included, freak shows, sword-swallowers, boxing booths, roundabouts, and horse racing. Greasy pole climbing was also a big feature in Rectory Square (the Broadway) with prizes of a leg of mutton!
