Amport Fete – Saturday 11 July

Fete 15The countdown to the fete is on (Saturday 11th July) and we’ve got such a great day and evening planned (tickets for the supper selling like hot cakes… book your tickets NOW – email kate.cavalier@gmail.com).

Amport Fete is from 12.30pm to 4.30pm and it’s is going to be a wonderful family day out, so do bring your family and friends too!  Entry is free and there is plenty of parking.

Enjoy a spot of lunch from the fete barbecue or tea tent, washed down with drinks from the well-stocked fete bar.  Our arena will host some fantastic entertainment throughout the afternoon, with gun dogs and hawks, egg throwing and sports day events.  We have Punch & Judy shows and bushcraft demonstrations and plenty of stalls and games to keep both kids and adults busy… everything from the traditional welly-wanging, splat the rat, skittles and face-painting to the new additions of tree climbing, smash the egg and the human fruit machine.  The south green will again play host to an array of beautiful classic cars and there will be tractor rides into the grounds of Amport House.
