A schedule of the 50-plus events, activities and performances during Feast Festival week (14th-23rd September) has been released. It reveals and revels in an eclectic expression of the many faces of the village's cultural life and personality. See the week's schedule by clicking on the PDF.
Children and young people are centre stage. West End star Alice Fearn will be holding a special theatrical workshop for Haddenham's children, there will be storytelling in neighbourhoods across the village, hands-on craft and arts workshops, an opportunity for young local music groups to do a public gig, and much much more.
Music of all kinds, from chorale in the church to rock in the village hall. Ballroom, disco and line dancing — fortunately, not all at the same time!
Exhibitions and workshops throughout the week and across the village. Local artists and makers showcasing their talents and offering advice to amateurs and first-timers.
Competitions in poetry, photography, pear pie-making — and who is the "shoutiest" person in the village, in the Feast Festival Village Crier competition?
There are even new activities which the Festival has helped kick-off in response to community requests: an arts & crafts group, based in the new haberdashery section at the Garden Centre; and a Friday evening social and open mic night for musicians at the Kings Head. These new ideas are being trialled during the Festival. Encouraging new ways of including people, and meeting residents' ever-evolving tastes. It will be down to the people of Haddenham whether these continue to happen all year-round — but the passion and enthusiasm for this year's Feast Festival suggests the people of Haddenham are up for it!
More information about individual events will be released in the coming days. You can reserve your space or buy tickets online today.
