THE HISTORY OF THE FESTIVAL
The festival was originally organised to raise funds for the restoration of the village church. However over the years the festival has developed and grown to be a well-known feature of the village as well as providing an invaluable means of raising money for local organisations.
Over the years thousands of pounds have been raised to the benefit of the local community.
The Festival is built around the traditional Steam Threshing method of producing wheat and baling straw. In August willing volunteers help to harvest the locally grown wheat using a 1950s Lanz Binder.
