Appleby Horse Fair is an annual gathering of Gypsies and Travellers in the town of Appleby in Cumbria, which takes place on the first week in June, from Thursday to the following Wednesday, but this is essentially a weekend event the Main days being the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  If you come on Monday or Tuesday you may be disappointed as there will be VERY little to see.
