The fair in Nothingham is full of cameos and references.

Screen 2:
- The woman in the green dress on the top center, named Mistress Hayasher (referring to programmer Yoko Hayashi), says "I would dearly love some raw fish and rice."
- The person in orange clothing, sitting near the fence, named Morgan Creek, says "5 marks for a piece of Sir Kevin's leather, and no sniffing allowed in the vicinity.". Morgan Creek Entertainment was the company that produced Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Sir Kevin could also be a reference to Kevin Costner, who played Robin in that movie. (thanks to Graham Fielding for pointing out the Morgan Creek reference).
- On the bottom right you can find Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe, a.k.a. the Two Guys from Andromeda, a.k.a. the designers of the Space Quest series. When talking to Mark (on the right), he says "Look at this place! They don't use janitors here. A sanitation specialist would die from breathing the air.", to which Scott replies "But they have lots of guys named Roger. They're all over the place." and "I can see it now - Roger Wilco Meets Robin Hood! Olde England Plunges to new Depths of Excitement as.." and Mark interrupts "You're not convincing me." When first talking to Scott (on the left), he says "Think of the potential' 'Two Guys From Nothingham' has a real ring to it." to which Mark replies "I don't know. Lacks a little something.". Scott continues "We can wear funny codpieces where they belong instead of on our faces!" and Mark replies "You're not convincing me."
