Good news that Joyland Books have finally got round to printing Nick Laister and Robert Preedy's book on the history of Battersea Fun Fair. Although not all about the Festival of Britain this interesting A5 publication stretches over nearly 180 pages and traces the history of the fun fair and Festival Gardens from early planning to eventual closure in 1974. Lots of illustrations and a must for any Festivaler's bookshelf. Available at just £10.99 plus £2.99 p&p from the publishers (https://www.joylandbooks.com/books_n…/battersea-fun-fair.htm)
