A village green that is home to one of the oldest events in the country – Reach Fair, which dates back to 1201 – is about to host a brand-new event.
Reach Festival is a showcase for local handmade crafts and produce, taking place on Fair Green, home to the historic fair, on 24 September.
Craft displays will include potting, spinning, lace making and flint knapping (the making of prehistoric stone tools).
These, plus stalls, a stage and tea tent are on the green. Inside the Village Centre you’ll be able to find further crafts, cookery demonstrations, a baking competition and an autumn show. Music recitals and book readings take place in the church and there will also be a dog scurry.
