Feast Festival logo

There are already over 50 different events, activities and performances being held in the inaugural Haddenham Feast Festival (14th-23rd September). They span the spectrum of the village's arts and cultural life.

From rock music to weaving, poetry to photography, string quartets to stain-glass window-making, line dancing to jewellery-making. Concerts, workshops, exhibitions, talks, storytelling, music and dancing. There is something for every age and every taste.

The opening weekend will see a children's performance workshop led by West End star Alice Fearn with an afternoon concert in St Mary's Church to be followed by the official opening evening party, the sing-a-long screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

The closing weekend will have a chorale performance in the church, before the Village Hall becomes the focus of activity with musical and other entertainments all day, culminating in a communal 'feast' meal, followed by a village ceilidh.

During the week, there is a plethora of walks, talks, exhibitions, workshops and performances, including a 'rock night' in the village hall on Friday evening.

A Feast Festival spokesperson said, "The response to the festival idea has been incredible. Having over 50 events is purely down to the energy and support we've had from the village.

Local businesses, publicans, as well as village groups and individuals, have all embraced the concept of taking time to celebrate Haddenham's talents. People's enthusiasm is such that some who can't participate this year are already planning for next year. We'll be active on social media over the summer, publishing details of events, so do keep in touch with us."

Festival organisers will shortly publish a schedule of activity during the week, with lots more details about each event, and information when the centralised booking system goes online.

Most events will be free. And there are likely to be additional events added over the summer.

Haddenham.net will keep you updated, but over the summer if you want keep abreast of news then do follow the Feast Festival on Facebook, or email the organisers at: thefeastfest@gmail.com
