In line with Government guidlines and to keep volunteers and all visitors safe it has reluctantly been decided to cancel this year's Abridge Village Weekend. We will keep you updated on a date for next year (2021) once the current situation has eased.
Can we take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers, stallholders, exhibitors and visitors for your support over the years, wish you well and look forward to seeing you in 2021.
THE ABRIDGE VILLAGE WEEKEND (13th and 14th June 2020)
For over a quarter of a century, Abridge has put on a weekend each June. This year there have been some changes and the weeknd consists of two great days of music and activities:
A Fun Day and Music Festival with live tributes to Madness called Special Kinda Madness, “The Issues” and other great bands
A Craft Fair/ Antiques Fair and Vehicle Show on Sunday with music
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 a continues success 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 two days of events or contact us for any further information.
FUN DAY/MUSIC FESTIVAL
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 Madness and Ska called “Special Kinda Madness”, along with “The Issues” rock band.
With admission only costing £5 for Adults and under 16’s FREE OF CHARGE you are unlikely to find a better days entertainment for the price. Further details are on the Funday page.
CRAFT FAIR AND VEHICLE SHOW
The Sunday will see the return of our ever popular Craft Fair in the marquee with the Antiques Fair in the Village Hall. Along with this.we will have our Vehicle Show on the field with hundreds of cars, motorbikes and vans of all shapes, sizes and age.
The fairground is open along with food stalls, the bar and much more so come along and enjoy the day out. Find out more at the Craft Fair and Vehicle Show page.
