Planning for Festival Field 2022

Festival Field 2022 – Our Next Village Fete

Festival Field is 2022's Village Fete

Festival Field 2022 is the working title for next year’s Village Fete. Planned to take place on 4th June 2022 it will be closely linked to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations with the beacon lighting on 2nd June. Planning started in September with a group of parish councillors and members of the public sharing ideas. Their outline plans for Festival Field include:

Sports

Sporting plans so far include:

Fun at the 2016 fete
Zumba at the 2012 Jubilee Fete
  • an under 16’s 2km fun run late morning, with medals for all,
  • under 11’s football and cricket taster sessions in the afternoon,
  • trampette and tennis sessions for all ages.

Stalls, food & drink

The fun plans include stalls run by local companies, organisations, and charities, to promote their activities and aid fund-raising. Organisers are also planning for a Royal-themed craft show in the John Lampon Hall.

Food and drink stalls will run throughout the day, catering for all, with tea and cakes, BBQ, hog roast, pizza oven, picnic boxes and of course ice cream!

Music

Three local bands will be performing on a stage in the evening, until 8.00 p.m. In the afternoon a DJ, local singers and choir will provide the musical entertainment.

The group have made an application for an RAF flypast during the day.

Many hands…

The plans will take many hands to deliver. If you would like to join those planning our Festival Field 22 please do join the group on 22nd November in the John Lampon Hall at 19:30.  Potential sponsors are also most welcome.  You can let the Village Fete Sub-Committee know by email to [email protected].
