Reading event "The Innocent Village Fete 2008" - Reply to this / 2 comment(s)
Thanks to Gemma, part of the team promoting the Innocent Village Fete this year, we have got the correct information right from the word go (last year there was a lot of speculation as to what was happening).

Last year's fete was great with lots going on - displays, stalls, LOADS of yummy food (lots of it was vegetarian, which was great) and of course lots of smoothies about. My son (3 at the time) thought it was wonderful. We even managed to see Seth Lakeman playing, which was a treat for me (young children often love live music as well). Lots of fun, traditional and, more often than not, very silly fete events.

The official press blurb is:

"Join us for an afternoon of ferret racing, cake eating and Morris Dancing at the innocent village fete in Regent’s Park on Saturday 2nd August and Sunday 3rd August 2008.

Now in its second year, the innocent village fete is a great day out for all the family and the perfect way to while away the hours on a hot summer’s day (fingers crossed for lots of sunshine). It all starts at 11am and runs until 7pm. So, pencil it in your diary, scribble it on your hand and tell all your friends. It’s going to be great - that nice duck herding man is already booked and raring to go.

Over the weekend, you’ll be able to indulge in the following fete pursuits: welly-wanging, duck herding, dog agility (just for dogs), coconut shy, tug-o-war, ferret racing, Morris dancing, old fashioned funfair rides, cream teas, home-made cakes, tombola, a band stand and lots more.

And we’ll have lots of life’s necessities too: a huge farmers’ market (with stalls from Borough Market), lots of smoothies to taste, loads of stuff for kids to do (including a dedicated kids’ area with kids food stalls, rides and a petting zoo), al fresco ballroom dancing, live music including acoustic and unplugged acts, a picnic area, a knitting tent, arts and crafts, massages, and a feel good area if it all gets a bit much.

Tickets to the innocent village fete are £7.50 for adults and £3.50 for children (plus booking fee); under 3s go free. Tickets will be available from early May.

See you there"

If I hear any more, I'll post it.

    Tickets available now for the fete. They are £7.50 for adults and £3.50 for kids (plus a £1.50 Adult booking fee, £1 kids booking fee)

    And I hadn't realised, but it's all non profit making, with money going to:

    Samaritans, Friends of the Earth, Wellchild their very own innocent foundation.
