Charter Fair Revival

In 1973 the Great Harwood Civic Society revived the event for one day.
There was a procession from the Plough Inn.
Queen Street was lined with stalls and many people dressed in Victorian costume for the occasion.
The success of this day prompted repeats every year the "crying" took place on a Sunday.
