Jill and Bruce – Elemental Co-ordination at Barsham in 1976

Bruce and Jill first came to the fairs for the Last Barsham in 1976, and they became a regular fixture from then on, moving to Wymondham two or three years later. In 1981 and 1982, they organised the fair at Lyng, under the name the Faerie Faire.

Much loved by many many people, he will be missed.

  1. I saw them in 1976 and then later, some time between 1982/4 at the Fairport Convention reunion at Cropredy. Bruce and some of his machines made an appearance on stage. Being young and extremely optimistic, I tried to get backstage to meet him as I have Lacey ancestry, but was, of course, politely turned away. How embarrassing! It must have been all the Theakston’s Old Peculier I’d been drinking. Yes, he will be sadly missed, but he brightened up many a person’s day, which has to be a Good Thing.

    I saw Bruce and Jill during the 80s at various Earth Mysteries gatherings such as the annual Ley Hunters Moots around the country where they presented fabulously weird audio visual shows depicting ancient sites. They graciously allowed us to build stone labyrinths at the Faerie Fairs.

    Ah very sad news.

    I am running a new wood fair that has its roots firmly in the old Albion fairs and will be held in Norfolk. Can you pass my poster on to any interesting people please.

    many thanks
