Many Haddenham residents are familiar with the annual Towersey Festival, which this year runs from 25th-28th August. You can find out more about this large scale music and arts festival here.
However, you may be less aware of the 'Towersey Fringe' — a smaller scale fundraising event taking place on the afternoon and evening of Sunday 27th August.
The Towersey Fringe began in 2015 when a group of enthusiastic Towersey villagers decided to hold a fundraising event on the August Bank holiday weekend at Towersey Playing Fields. They settled on the idea of a comedy evening featuring some of the finest comedians on the circuit, with bands and beer during the afternoon, to compliment the music festival hosted in Thame.
Everything is run by volunteers, the live bands provide their time for free and organisers look for as many sponsors as they can to help cover the costs involved. The aim of the Fringe is to raise money for Towersey Playing Fields which is badly in need of a new clubhouse.
Towersey playing fields may not be high on the list of favoured charities as far as Haddenham residents are concerned, but the comedy line-up might certainly be an attractive proposition. One for the diary?
