Feast Week

Abbotsley Feast Week

Saturday 18 July to Sunday 26 July 2020

Yes it's that time again !  Every July, Abbotsley holds its annual Feast Week to celebrate the Feast Day of St Margaret of Antioch, the patron saint of St Margaret's church .  As we said last month, this year be no different.  The events may not be the same, but we still promise a week of events and fun for all and, most importantly we'll still be planting out pants! 

This year, to jazz it up a bit , why not add a bit of bunting to set off your planted pants in true celebratory style!  Please have your planted pants created and displayed by Saturday 18th July.  Judging will take place throughout the week and the winner will be announced at the end of the week.

Here's what's planned so far.  More details on each to follow and, depending on government guidelines, we may be able to add to this.   We will be delivering full programme nearer the time and will also update you on Touchbase

Saturday 18 July - Picnic in the park from 2.00 pm    With live music!
Plus   Carry on Camping - pitch your tents on Abbotsley Playing Fields (please note, due to insurance, no private BBQs are allowed)
Sunday 19 July - Patronal Service
Tuesday 21 July - Bingo - via Zoom !
Wednesday 22 July - Quiz Night
Friday 24 July - Golf Day
Saturday 25 July - Tables Sales, Raffle and Classic Car Display around the village

Following the great success last year, Abbotsley Feast Week is running its amazing Family Treasure Hunt again.  Collect your quiz sheets at the Picnic in the Park or behind the Eight Bells from Saturday 18 July.  Please leave £1 in the box
