Sherfield Village Fete is one of the largest events of its kind in North Hampshire, attended by over 3000 visitors each year. This year’s fête will take place on the village green on Saturday 13th June, starting at 12:30, when once again there will be an afternoon of fun for all the family, with the aim of raising funds for good causes. This year our lead charity is Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, and we also donate to the village hall, St Leonard’s Church, and other local good causes.
We’re planning around a “Circus” theme, and we’d like our stallholders and visitors to join in.
Our main attractions planned for this year include Japanese drummers, gymnastic displays, Juggling Jake’s circus skills demonstrations, rides on Trigger the Train, the return of Quirk’s Animal Roadshow, and Morris dancing. With a full programme of arena displays, music, a wide variety of stalls to browse and buy from, the enthusiasts’ vehicle display, our fun dog show, bouncy castles and other inflatables, face painting, and races for children, there will be lots to see and also opportunities for you to “have a go”. Try your hand at juggling with Juggling Jake, or maybe get up high for some aerial gymnastics, or put your back into the tug of war. There’s even a chance for your dog to show off its agility. Plenty to eat and drink too: alongside the famous Fete BBQ, Tea Tent and bar, this year we’ll have a range of other food choices, fresh salads, ice cream vans and more.
Our full colour programme will be distributed during May to addresses in the village and beyond. If you would like to advertise in it, contact firstname.lastname@example.org .
Online booking for stalls is now open, please visit the stall booking page to find out more and request a pitch.
Are you able to donate anything for us to sell at the fete? As usual, we’ll be collecting round the village, and this year you can also make your offer by completing our donations form on the village stalls page.
We are always looking for additional volunteers to help us plan and stage this popular annual event. If you’re willing and able to join the team, register using our volunteering sign up form.
