A fantastic afternoon out for all of the family – something for everyone.

A traditional Cotswolds village fete. Ebrington is situated at the northerly end of the Gloucestershire Cotswolds, 10 miles south of Stratford-upon-Avon and 2 miles east of Chipping Campden. 

By popular demand again this year, Chipping Campden Swing Band will accompany the fete and there will be a display of classic and vintage cars, motor cycles and tractors. We are also delighted that the children of Campden Academy of Dance will once again perform dance routines for us.

Owing to the recent heavy rain it is no longer viable for us to hold the fete on the cricket ground. At last night’s meeting it was agreed to relocate to Battledene Farm, Station Road, Ebrington GL55 6LF by kind permission of Bill and Sally Bond-Williams. 

All the familiar stalls will be there including: cakes, WI jams and preserves, produce, books, plants and bric-a-brac as well as flower and gift stalls.

There will be a grand raffle, the bottle stall, the traditional “Wheel of Fortune”, and games such as crown darts, and skittles.

For the children there will be the ever popular obstacle course and sports, a bouncy castle, face painting, tombola, and hay rides.

Our very talented local theatre group “Caramba” will also perform the Three Billy Goats Gruff fairy tale. Animal-Mania are bringing their mobile zoo – a collection of animals, many of which children can touch and hold, under supervision, for a really personal experience. There will also be a display of insects and creatures entitled “Life in the Rainforest”.

One of the main attractions is always the Family Dog Show in which families can enter their dogs in the various categories. This is both entertaining to enter and to watch. Bring along your dog for this event. Agility trials will be held alongside the dog show.

Delicious teas will be served and a barbecue, ice creams, and soft drinks will be available on the field, where The Ebrington Arms, our local village pub, will also be running a bar.

The entrance fee is £1 for adults and children over 12.
