Ken Perry has crafted a model of a Haddenham Feast from the 1860s.
It will be on display in the museum throughout the Festival, 13th-23rd September.
The Feast in that era was still largely run by the village but commercial attractions were becoming important. Walter Rose was particularly struck by the "high-flier", a gigantic swing-boat, and I am sure you will be impressed by Ken's carved representation of this.
