The 2018 barrel Fair is now in the planning stages with lots of hard work being done by the committee to make this the special event that it always is.
This year will see the very last music quiz evening that the legendary Doc Cox will be organising so one not to be missed! It takes place in the Village Hall on Thursday 16th August, with the doors opening at 7.30 and the quiz starting at 8.30pm. Bring your own food and drink; tea coffee and soft drinks will be on sale. The cost is £2 per person to enter and all of the proceeds go to the Barrel fair fund.
The free entertainment on Saturday night kicks off with the Double DJ children's disco at 6.30pm in the White Horse car park. This was a hugely popular event last year with music, games and laughs for young children. After a short break, 'Handle with Care' will again be performing, playing a range of pop & rock music from the 60's to the present day. Again, entry is free and there will be an outside bar with food available to buy as well.
Sunday 19th August is Barrel fair day which starts at 11.00am with the usual procession for the children. It will begin at the Village hall car park and proceed to the main arena for the opening ceremony. All children are welcome to take part and there will be prizes for those in fancy dress under the age of 13 yrs.
Barrel Fair races begin with the teams from the White Horse and the Crown racing each other so come and support your favourite team. The rest of the races take place at various times throughout the afternoon so pick up a free programme to check on the timing of these. Sign ups are at the HQ desk.
