Notes / History Mitcham Fair, c.1908
A fair is thought to have taken place in Mitcham since the
16th century, when Elizabeth I visited the area. The Queen
is said to have been so enchanted by the entertainment
staged in her honour, that she granted a charter for an
annual fair. Sadly no evidence has been found to confirm it.
