2024 Festival Highlights Video

We have put together a highlights video of a hugely enjoyable & successful Festival weekend. We are sincerely grateful to everyone who supported the events or who helped in making it a weekend to remember in the village.

Between the organising committee & those who helped with sponsorship & preparing the village, there were over 50 people involved in a massive effort to help things go as well as possible. To our approx. 200 sponsors, we really want to thank you once again for your continuing support.
