Calling all parents and grandparents. Do you know a child who would like this beautiful lorry?
Made by the talented Richard Marks and donated by Gina and Jon Sherwood, the lorry is the prize in the draw taking place across the whole of Chudfest week.
But you don’t have to wait until then to get your tickets. They are on sale, at just £1 per strip, at the Chudfest Box Office every Thursday and Saturday morning in the market, outside the Town Hall. Get your tickets now, with the chance of making your favourite child very happy.
Have you ever fancied turning your hand to a new craft? How about trying an age-old craft as a new hobby? Friday 8th July brings Shan Palmes to the marquee to demonstrate and entice you to the world of Willow Weaving. You could try a basket, or a 2D sculpture, maybe a garden tripod. You could make all of this year’s Christmas Gifts!
There is a £3 charge for adults, but all materials used will be included. Kiddies come for free, but must be accompanied by an adult. For full details, click here.
The brochures have been printed; we’ve collected them; stuffed the flyers in them (thanks, team); and Tom has loaded them into his car. In fact, the first few are being delivered as I type. (If you hear something coming through your letterbox as you read this, it could well be your copy.)
And if you prefer your information electronically, you can find a link to the full brochure on the Summer Festival page.
It may be a sign of age, but this year is just flying by. It barely seems like yesterday since we were standing in the rain watching the lights go on during the Christmas Fayre, yet here we are, just seven weeks from the arrival of the marquee.
Leah Sambrooks won the competition to design the brochure cover and her illustration is currently being printed. The brochure will be with you before the end of this month.
The programme is now finalised and the web pages will be up very soon.. Over the next few weeks, we will introduce each of the events: what’s happening, where, when and where to get your tickets.
We’ve got some exciting new events this year plus lots of old favourites. we’re very excited about Chudfest 2016 Summer Festival and we hope you are, too.
The competition to design the cover for this year’s Chudfest brochure is now closed. Many thanks to everyone who entered; we will be announcing the winner very shortly. The brochure is currently being prepared and will be with you towards the end of next month.
And in the meantime, the Save the Date leaflet is being delivered to all the houses in town over the next few days. This is your chance to see what’s on the programme and get the key dates in your diaries. We’ve got some exciting new events coming up, plus a whole load of old favourites (and I don’t just mean the Committee Members!).
It may not seem like it, especially when we’re being battered by wind and rain, but summer’s just around the corner. You are going to hear a lot more from us over the next three months. Here’s to another great Summer Festival.
With just one week to go, we’re starting to get ready for the Garden and Produce Show. In the McCormick household, one of us is planning on entering one of the baking classes, while the other one is searching for an unusual container for a floral arrangement. I’m not going to tell you which is which – but anyone who knows us will probably be able to guess!
