Feast Day 2016

The Feast Day was held on Monday August 29th 2016 (Bank Holiday Monday).

This year we experimented with holding the Buckby Feast on the Sports field for the first time. We did not know if it would be successful or not… but we felt we needed more space to show off our village.

Well… fortune favours the brave… and the move to the sports field turned out to be a good decision. More people at the Feast who stayed longer. We had almost universally positive feedback from the visitors to the Feast.

Our thanks go to the Sports Field committee who allowed us to use the sports field.

We had all the usual stalls and entertainment, including:-

  • live music
  • real ale
  • Pimms tent
  • BBQ
  • Pig Roast
  • Fun Fair rides
  • Marbles challenge
  • Welly Wanging
  • Archery
  • Air Ambulance
  • and more and more!
