The video above is from Wick Fête. It was last Saturday. I went with my wife, daughter and my mother and her husband. Wick is a small village just outside of Pershore. It is a very beautiful village with an old manor-style house. They had a church and a village hall but sadly no pub or shop. The village is now famous in the vacinity for growing natural confetti from delphinium petals.
The fête was blessed with sunny weather. There were clowns, a dog show, a fun zone and an activity field with climbing wall, juggling zone and face painting. All the activities were free. It kept me and my daughter happily entertained for over an hour.
As with all fêtes there was a tombola and cake stalls. We had tea in the grounds of the manor house. It was one of the worst cups of coffee I have had in a long time. Nevertheless, it didn’t dampen my enthusiasm for one of the best fêtes I have ever attended. It was unashamedly English and amateur; with lots of nice people giving up their time to make it happen.
