Edwardian Fete

Step back in time and join us for a wonderful day out with an array of exciting Edwardian entertainment.

There will be music, laughter, competitions, performers and fair rides. Along the lawn there will be stalls selling their wares and delicious Edwardian Afternoon Teas will be on sale in the tea room.

In keeping with our village fair feel, there will be a bake-off style competition for produce, preserves and cakes , presided over by a select committee of judges. Our colleagues at Special Collections Cadbury Research Library will be educating us on all things turn of the century in the Old Kitchen, with live demonstrations and the chance to see some of the works from the library. What weird and wonderful things did our Edwardian ancestors eat and why?

If you still have energy after all that, you and your family can get dressed up in authentic clobber and have your photograph taken for posterity. The event is our crowning jewel of the year - not to be missed!

Entrance is £6 for adults and £4 for FoW, children and students. There will be a small charge for some activities so bring your pocket money!
