How time flies when you are part of the Festival organising committee, it
doesnt seem like a year since I welcomed you all to last years event.
However, in that year the Village Fund committee have worked with
enthusiasm and determination to deliver another successful community
event. It is encouraging to see significantly more committee members
and volunteers this year, who have brought new perspectives and skills
to the committee.
Before I talk about this years event I would just like to remind all those
attending the Festival that the money you spend on entrance and at the
event goes back to the community by supporting local activities. We
generate an annual fund for donations which is broadly related to the
amount of money raised at the gate, recently we have supported:-
So to this year's Festival; we hope you will be amazed by the roving
magician, astounded by Dakos Flying Angels, dazzled by the diverse
range of music, fascinated by The Sealed Knot, impressed by the
vintage vehicles and wonder at the complexity of the Stream Threshing.
Why not enter your dog in the dog show or test your capacity for eating
donuts? Dont forget to reach for the stars with the astronomy club but
above all else we hope you want to stay for the whole weekend and get
involved in as many things as possible.
The Sealed Knot, with its large membership is one of the best know
re-enactment and historical groups in the UK.
Scott Perry, professional magician featured on television, in print, and
online. Performed for royalty, the rich and the famous,
Dakos Flying Angels, Gymnastics display club, based in Nottingham.

past. The Family Elan a fusion of folk, drum and bass. The large sound of
Whitwell brass band, plus, local acts from Tuxford Academy and also the

Hopefully you will have all entered the horticulture and the baking
competitions, and for those with dogs please enter the fun dog show on the
Saturday which was a great success last year.
It will be great to see the local school children bring along their sunflowers to
the festival and also to see the amazing designs the children made to help
promote the festival.
And finally, enjoy the whole of the weekend and please feel free to add your
names to become members of the organising committee.
