Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month 2018

Celebrations for Gypsy Roma Traveller History month went on around many prisons in England and Wales. The Traveller Equality Project attended events in HMP Thameside, HMP Highdown, HMP Chelmsford and HMP Erelstoke to name a few. All events were well attended and celebrations included
traditional meals, music, story telling and socialising. GRTHM coincides with Appleby Fair and this too was a fantastic event attended by many.


Appleby-in-Westmorland is a market town in Cumbria, north-west England and has been host to the fair since 1775. The picture above displays some of the horses that were at the fair this year. The fair was well received in the media this year, with many national newspapers reporting on the positives of the fair, the beauty of the horses and the fun had by all.  If you celebrated Gypsy Roma Traveller History Month in your prison, please get in touch and let us know what you did.
