St Causnan's Fair

The Heritage Society hosted the St Causnan's toy fair in Dunnichen Church on Saturday 8th March. Traditional fairs were held here on or around St Causnan's day. By the 18th century these had become 'toy' fairs, when no cattle, horses or grain were sold. We used the 'toy' theme to run workshops in making puppets, peg dolls and balloon models. Gingerbread 'fairings' were sold, a film of children's games was shown and a selection of non-electronic toys was available for children to play with.
