Oh what a perfect day… Beautiful weather, metres of bunting, cute alpaca’s, smiley volunteers and pots of clotted cream!!  Many thanks to Higher Beings- stilt walkers, Torrington Silver Band, Volunteers and Stall holders.  With a very long list of volunteers and those happy to sponsor the event, its too many people to name but we thank you all. Volunteers worked during the week and over the weekend to ensure an afternoon of fun took place.  Many were egg-cited as the suspense mounted for this years egg throwing competition. Congratulations to David and Mike the winners of this years Egg throwing Competition! Egg-cellent fun.

Congratulations to Martin with Joe his four legged friend who won Overall Champion in this years Dog show.  Thanks to Andrew for judging and sponsorship from NWF, J. Pickards & Co, So Country, Webbers Estate Agents, Claire Large Rosettes and Daisy Park making the event possible.
















On Saturday 27th April Pentabus performed “As The Crow Flies”. Based on a true story of a woman who struck up an unlikely friendship with a wounded crow, the play featured live music, original songs, witty dramaand a crow called Alfie. A heart-warming story of friendship, healing and kindness from Hattie Naylor, Olivier Award nominee and adapter of Radio 4’s The Diary of Samuel Pepys.

Two actors performed Beth and Alfie’s unusual story, accompanied by live music composed especially for this play by Dom Coyote. A funny, moving and timeless story of our endless fascination with birds – especially clever, tricksy, knowing birds like Alfie.

Friday 3rd February.  Fine Chisel performed ‘Beneath the Blizzard’.   The fast paced story telling and live music at the Pavilion was well received.  All ages enjoyed, the children particularly delighted in the performance.  The Playing Field Committee continue to work in partnership with Beaford Arts providing entertainment for our community.
