THE ABRIDGE VILLAGE WEEKEND (7th, 8th and 9th June 2019)
For over a quarter of a century, Abridge has put on a weekend each June made up of four great events:
The Friday Night Summer Ball
1940s Style Celebration
A Fun Day and Music Festival with live tributes to Ed Sheeran and Queen,
“The Issues” and Eagle Display plus fair and much more on Saturday
A Craft Fair/ Antiques Fair and Vehicle Show on Sunday
There is something for everyone throughout the weekend, with a licensed bar, refreshments, food stalls, fairground and much more through both the Saturday and Sunday.
This year we hope that the Weekend will be bigger than ever so that we can carry on funding essential repairs and maintenance of the fantastic village hall. It is because of the money raised by the Fundraising Committee that allows the hall to be maintained to such a high standard and allows local residents to rent out the hall and very competitive rates. Local charities and organisation also benefit by raising funds with stalls on the Fun Day for which they keep 100% of all money raised.
Look around the website and the four main events or contact us for any further information.
THE SUMMER BALL
This year the Ball has a fantastic new band playing the tunes that will have you dancing the night away. There is a 4-course meal served to the table, the bar and a wine table.
Barcoda play UK wide and are made up of excellent musicians and singers that perform a wide range of music that will have you dancing the night away and have the dance floor heaving.
The Ball is great excuse to dress to impress and have a great night out with friends. More details are on THE BALL page

Our Fun Day and Music Festival have all the ingredients for a great day out with a Funfair, sideshows, Bouncy Castle and Inflatables, food stalls, a bar and more. Along with this, we have an Eagle display plus over three hours of top live music from tributes to Ed Sheeran and Queen, along with “The Issues” rock band.
