Actress Wendy Craig paid a visit to Warwick to open the Emscote Lawn School Elizabethan Fair. Miss Craig said: "The education of our children is one of the most vital matters in the world today. We must preserve a choice of school in order to cater for every kind of child. We don't want to produce children like cars from an assembly line, lacking individual flair." Miss Craig, star of the TV series, "Not in Front of the Children, " arrived from her mother's home in Kenilworth by an "Elizabethan horse-drawn coach" re-constructed by boys at the school. A ducking stool, quintain(jousting), stocks, madrigals, a pig roast, archery, falconry and the school staff and pupils in full Elizabethan costume provided the period flavour.
