Tarvin Village Fete Afternoon Events

Home » Newsroom » Tarvin Village Fete Afternoon Events

A couple of days ago we highlighted the Procession on Saturday 28th from the Ridgeway finishing at Tarvin Community Centre around 1.30pm.


The Fete will then be opened by the Sheriff of Chester, Councillor Herbert Manley at the Community Centre car-park and the Fete King (Fletcher Harvey-Hunt) and Queen ( Leah Barnham ) will be crowned.

Open Air Concert
Throughout the afternoon there will be an Open Air Concert at the Community Centre lead by the Farndon Brass Band .
The Morris Dancers who were also in the parade will give 2 performances as will the local Kelsborrow Choir. Finally we will have St Andrew's Youth Choir.

Tarvin Methodist Church will be providing Café Style Refreshments in the Edna Rose Room or if you prefer there will be a Beer Tent on the Community Centre car-park. A Retro Ice Cream Van and Candy Floss machine will no doubt be in demand for our younger visitors. Choose between Burgers and Hot Dogs from Farndon Brass Band or a Cake selection from the stall run by St. Andrew's Church.

As well as stalls selling crafts and bling and buy , there will be Henna Tattoos, Hair Spraying, Face Painting and Nails.
Also there will be several traditional activities such as tombola, lucky dip and many others to keep all the family entertained.

These will be in the main hall

  • Key Stages 1&2 (primary): using fruit or vegetables (or both), make a model to show any aspect of Tarvin village
  • Key Stages 3, 4 & 5 (secondary): photographic competition, depicting any aspect of Tarvin village
    Shortlisted entries will be displayed at the Community Centre and Judging will take place at the Fete
  • Victoria Sponge Cake: adults & children's sections ( bring to the Community Centre on the morning of the 28th)
    there will be some serious Prize money for the top 3 selections in each class!

Hopefully there will be also be a Tug of War Tournament — but on the Recreation Field!

When all this is over there will be a short break to gather breath before the evening's Jazz Band entertainment starts in the Community Centre. ( More about this to follow)
