Village Fete Sub-Committee

In 2012 it was decided to hold a village fete to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee year and to do this a sub-committee was formed under the umbrella of the Festivals Association to organise it. Owing to the success of the fete it was agreed this should be made an annual event and fetes were held from 2013 to 2017 and one is planned for 2018. Please

2017 Fete Report
The Tintern Festivals Association prepared a report on the 2017 Fete which can be viewed below. Its main aim is to provide evidence of the use of funds to grant-makers who kindly supported the event but it also gives an insight into how much organisation is required to put on a successful fete each year.
