Goose Fair – Nottingham’s Legendary Fair for Over 100 years!

By | Blog | No Comments

Goose Fair is an annual fair that takes place in Nottingham. It is one of the oldest and largest travelling fairs in Europe, with history of 700 years. The fair traditionally takes place during the first week of October and attracts visitors from all over the UK.

The name “Goose Fair” comes from the fact that, in the past, farmers would bring their geese to the fair to sell. While the selling of geese is no longer a part of the fair, there are still many traditional rides and attractions that have been enjoyed for generations. Some of the most popular rides include the Ferris wheel, the carousel, and the waltzers.

Aside from the rides, Goose Fair also has a wide range of food stalls and games. Visitors can enjoy traditional fair food such as candy floss, toffee apples, and hot dogs. There are also many games to play, such as hook-a-duck and tin can alley.

In recent years, Goose Fair has become a significant event for the city of Nottingham. It is a time when people from all backgrounds come together to enjoy the rides, food, and entertainment on offer, and is a great way to celebrate the rich history and culture of the area.

Have you ever wandered how long it will take to clean random architecture

Let’s begin with the Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China was built as a military defensive line to defend the invasions from some northern nomadic nations.

The total length of all sections of the Great Wall of China ever built adds up to about 21,196 kilometres (13,171 miles) which means it would take 15 mins to drive from one end to the other and if you were ever feeling adventurous and wanted to walk it would take you 18 months.

If we were to clean The Great Wall of China, it would take around 100 people and would approximately take 52 years (FIGURES NOT EXACT)

Let’s have a look at the Shard in London.

The Shard, also referred to as the Shard London Bridge and formerly London Bridge Tower, is a 72-storey skyscraper, designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano, in Southwark, London,

It has approximately 11,000 glass panels which is the equivalent of eight football pitches and as you can imagine it would take days and days to clean.

So how long will it take to clean The Shard??

It would take a team of cleaners around three months to complete the entire glass façade. Once they’ve finished, they start all over again so that the iconic London skyscraper gets four cleans a year.

Let’s look at The Big Ben

Big Ben is the nickname for the Great Bell of the Great Clock of Westminster at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, England and the name is frequently extended to refer also to the clock and the clock tower.

The Houses of Parliament clock (nicknamed Big Ben) was built in 1859. Each clock face is made up of 312 pieces of opal glass, which means that when it’s looked at it must be treated carefully.

It takes a week to complete the cleaning so long as the weather stays fine.

Office cleaning can take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours depending on the size and complexity of the job. If the cleaning, you are wanting is Commercial usually the cleaners will provide an estimate of the time and the price before starting their work.
