Have You Received Books From F4F?
This ground breaking book was published by Pearson in June 2021. The newest title for the Bug Club reading series, it is the perfect story for sharing a snapshot of the travelling Showman community. We have not created this book but Future4Fairgrounds are championing The Show Must Go On as we can see the positive impact it can have. Raising awareness of our community through Education. As a group we are fundraising and gifting copies to schools, hopeful we can make a difference to how Showmen are represented, recognised and understood. Authors, Richard O’Neill & Michelle Russell (Trails of Tales that Travel) have worked their magic to create an authentic and accurate insight into our unique way of life, heritage and culture. We hope you enjoy your free copies.
