Much Wenlock is said to be the home to inspiration for the modern day Olympics thanks to Dr William Penny Brookes - the promoter physical education and personal betterment - who was born, lived and worked in the small town. And over Christmas you can enjoy the merriment of the town he enjoyed as a child through their annual quintessentially English Christmas Fayre.

With over 100 stalls dedicated to Christmas merchandise, entertainment in the form of a saxophone quartet, a male voice choir, a brass band, theatre productions and a partridge in a pair tree (well, maybe not the latter); it is all rounded off with a candle lit procession down the High Street.
