Tuesday 31st May saw the annual competition to choose the Fool of Muncaster for 2016.

As ever, the competition was close-fought with Fraser Hooper seeing off some very talented opposition to claim the title (together with the wooden trophy and a case of Tom Fool ale) to be held through to 2017’s Festival.

Fraser has been performing his contemporary clowning routines around the world for some 24 years and is ably qualified to stand alongside the best of his predecessors in the role of Muncaster’s Fool. We hope to see him here at some of Muncaster’s other events and occasions in his official capacity during the year of his reign.
