It is a huge understatement to say that the cancellation of this year’s Fest was a disappointment!
The Committee and I, however, promise (subject to there being no restrictions) to be back with a bigger and better Fest on Saturday 19th June 2021.
The planning for this year’s Fest was well advanced when in March we had no option but to cancel. The great news is that the majority of musicians, dancers and entertainers booked for this year are returning in 2021.
Our plan for 2021 is to continue to build on the success of previous years by having even more quality Music, Dance and Children’s entertainment than ever before.
The first Fest took place in 2012 with the specific intent of providing a one day Festival in South Petherton, ensuring that it was supported by the village and that it would be a free event. This is still the case, and without our sponsors, supporters and the generosity of all attending and the tireless work of so many brilliant volunteers we would not have survived.
Full details of the programme will be released early next year together with an update from me, and will, as in previous years feature events in the Market Square, The David Hall, The Brewers, St Peter and St Paul’s Church and The Blake Hall together with stalls, and very much more.
A great day is guaranteed and I have no doubt that the strange happenings of late will ensure that the enthusiasm for this event from everyone will even surpass anything we have witnessed before!
Stay safe and looking forward to seeing you all next year.
Pete Wheeler (Chair)
