The event itself takes its name from one of Retfords more famous landmarks- The Savastopol Cannon. Captured from the Russians during the Siege of Sevastopol it was hauled back to Retford and with much pomp and ceremony displayed in its current position in Cannon square sometime after 1856.

  Entrance: £3, Under 16’s and Concessions £2

Council owned car parks on CHAPLEGATE,CHURCHGATE and CHANCERY LANE, as well as the un-surfaced area owned by Asda off WEST STREET are all FREE on SUNDAYS. If you plan to stay over night, there are many B&B’s in the Town and an evening at the RUM RUNNER or the award winning BeerHeadz with their guest ales and great atmosphere, that would be a good place to start!
