Hungerford is a market town in Berkshire. Hungerford is the only place in the country to have continuously celebrated Hocktide or Tutti Day, which is the second Tuesday after Easter. Today it marks the end of Hungerford councils financial and administrative year, but in the past it was a more general celebration associated with the towns great patron, John of Gaunt. Its origins are thought lie in celebrations following King Alfreds expulsion of the Danes.
There is an old legend that Hingwar the Dane was drowned accidentally while crossing the river Kennet here, and that the town was named after him. This stems from the probably mistaken belief that the Battle of Ethandun took place at Eddington in Berkshire rather than Edington in Wiltshire or Edington in Somerset.
The Hungerford massacre happened in 1987. A young unemployed local labourer named Michael Robert Ryan, armed himself with several weapons including an assault rifle and a Beretta pistol and shot and killed 16 people including his mother, and wounded 15 others, he then fatally shot himself. The massacre led to the Firearms (Amendment) Act 1988, which banned the ownership of semi-automatic centre-fire rifles and restricted the use of shotguns with a magazine capacity of more than two rounds. The Hungerford Report had demonstrated that Ryans collection of weapons was legally licensed.
