Jacques Morrell’s debut novel The Showman, centres around the travelling fairground community and a dark secret relating to Nottingham’s annual Goose Fair.
Goose Fair is one of Europe’s largest travelling fairs, with a history that dates back more than 700 years. It has modern rides like roller coasters, water rides, giant wheel, bombers, dodgems, twisters, waltzers, plus the traditional funfair attractions gallopers, stalls, side-shows and the famous cakewalk (as depicted on the cover of The Showman).
