AUTUMN IN ABBOTS: Popular autumn festival returns this month

 Published on: 31st August 2022   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

The annual Abbots Autumn Fest is set to return on Saturday, September 17, and village residents are invited to come along and join in the fun.

The event at School Mead celebrates local produce and crafts, and is a showcase for community groups and charities, as well as featuring games and activities for all ages and abilities.

Attendees can browse the unique handmade creations on offer at the artisan stalls and can buy produce and plants from local suppliers.

There will be live music and stage entertainment orchestrated by Mr Tim Brooks, with performances from Tappalachian and local singer Lizzy Hardingham.

Residents are invited to come along and enjoy hot food and drinks from the stalls on the green and from Tanners Wood Hall. A licensed bar will be run by Farr Brew of Wheathampstead.

There will also be a chance for residents to enter the big raffle, with several great prizes on offer.

The prizes include a winter canal barge trip for up to 12 people donated by Waterways Experiences, a Spar hamper of groceries, and more. The draw will be held just before the event closes at approximately 3.50pm.

If you have ever fancied being involved by helping out as a volunteer or joining a group, come and talk to the community and charity stalls.

Children up to Year 6 are invited to enter the Apple Treasure Hunt in the High Street. Entry forms are available from the Abbots Langley Library and Over the Moon until Monday, September 12. The winning entry will be drawn at the opening of the festival at 11am.

The event will be held at School Mead WD5 0LA, 11am to 4pm. Entry is free and accessible to all.
