The Big Village Party 2

The Village Fayre Committee are proud to be hosting the second Big Village Party at the Playing Field.

The Party will start at 4pm on Saturday 30th June and will finish at Midnight. Our aim is to embrace the young and old of the
village and to help with this the School will be curating a festival area for the young which will be running from 4pm.

After 3 brilliant years bringing you the Village Fayre from Tinkers Park, we bid a fond farewell and are enjoying settling back into our original home at The Playing Field in the heart of our village.

The Playing Field is a beautiful setting and its ours, the Villages’ and we love it! It’s got loads of space for us to run around and offers a stunning outlook for the Marquees.

Like last year we will bring you fantastic live music from 5pm with a diverse line up, again something for all tastes. Stay in touch here and on the Village Website for the confirmed line up announcements. A full schedule with timings will be
published shortly before the festival.

Our aim is to provide a range of delicious food and drink using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. There will be a delicious barbecue, with gourmet burgers and salad.
Vegetarian options including pesto and halloumi burgers, a vegetarian curry and more! Meal tickets will be
sold at the event or before with a discounted price for groups/ families.

We plan to party whatever the weather so dust off your sequins,get creative with your make-up and outfit! We positively encourage fancy dress…so get your thinking caps on. Let’s dress up and dance!
