Celebrating all that is great about our British villages & countryside folk
From busking vicars, to pimms on the lawn this is the place to chill out, listen to some music and take part in some fun village games and activities.
At the heart of the Village Green you will find an oasis of calm at ‘St Wulfstan’s Church’ , which like many village churches, is conveniently situated next to the pub!
There is something for all the family, whether you want a place for quiet reflection with the resident chaplains, to browse the wares of the bookshop, watch the skilled stonemasons from Hereford Cathedral displaying their craft , or simply to sit and listen to the range of entertainment from the bandstand with a cup of coffee and piece of homemade cake. The young and young at heart can pass some time creating doves and flowers, colouring and drawing or adding their thoughts to the Prayer Tree.
‘Beer and hymns’ will return again to the Green on Saturday and Sunday at 3pm, so why not join in to a jubilant rendition of a best-loved hymn from your school days, with a beer in hand! Music lovers will have a wide range to choose from with whimsical charm from Worcester Ukulele Club, the unique blend of world instruments from Elgar School of Music and percussion from local band Drum Love. On Friday The Bandstand will host performances by talented young individuals from local school choirs.
Comedy folk band, Folk On will headline on Saturday with their eminently funny musical romps. Something’s stirring in the village of Little Dribblepatch … it’s Derek Tinkleberry, Donald Cornfoot and Edmund Sidebottam, otherwise known as Folk On – the finest comedy band since The Hay Bale Boys (and who remembers them?).
Derek and Donald have been making music together since their primary school days when the music room in the village school was temporarily used for detentions. From those early (and raucous) beginnings came their first band, The Reggae Recorders, whose repertoire included ‘London’s Burning’ and ‘Frere Jacques’ (but with that unmistakeable Caribbean lilt).
