In July 1980 the church at Whitchurch Canonicorum in Dorset celebrated its 900th Anniversary. The church is the only one in the country other than Westminster Abbey to have the bones of its own saint, St Wite, in the church itself. Part of the celebrations was a play, Legends of St Wite written by Christopher Dilke, exploring the possible identity of St Wite. The play was performed in the church.
As well as the play a Fair was also organised to take place at the same time. Craft and produce stall were erected on the church path between the War Memorial and the church gates. Games and other fun activities took place in the field to the South of the church.
