14th Easton on the Hill Gala Weekend
May 21st - 25th, 2020
Gala: 21-25th May
The Gala Planning is rolling ahead, with monthly meetings ( all at 7.00pm, on Mon 16th March, Mon 20th April, Mon 4th May) in the Blue Bell to pull things together. If you’d like to join us, feel free, just drop me a line and I’ll let you know when the next meeting is and how you might help.
So far, and with thanks to Alex, we’ve got the basics planned- Beer festival, marquees, and the programme, which will broadly follow the usual format. We’re hoping to have a grand quiz on the Thursday 21st May, then Alex has booked the Motor City Vipers for a Motown Evening on Friday 22nd. Saturday features the Cricket Club 20/20 (in 2020) match with BBQ and bar, followed by “Easton’s Got Talent” in the Evening. EGT will be a spoof awards evening, the “DAFTAs”, with hopefully lots of locals and groups entertaining the audience with take-offs of film TV, and stage shows, plus some sketches and no doubt some singing. Sunday’s Music Festival already has 7 bands lined up and plenty of beer to keep you dancing. Monday’s Fete will start with the popular Pet Show at 12.00 and then all the usual stalls, kids entertainment, games, and some daft events in the arena, like a Tug O’War and something along the lines of… The Easton Rodeo. Wait and see how that goes! The whole event supports all participating village groups and they benefit from the funds raised, which mainly come from the Grand Raffle, so if one of our happy helpers knocks on your door selling tickets soon, don’t hold back, someone’s got to win the £250 prize! In the meantime if anyone can offer sponsorship, raffle prizes, or help in any way, please drop me a line or contact any of the village groups taking part.
Pull your weight!!
This year’s Gala invites the village (and the surroundings) to engage in a Tug-o-War on Monday 25th May 2020.
This might be considered a ropey event but it could be aaaaaaaa lot of laughs. What we are looking for are entrants - as individuals either singly, with or without assistant(s), or teams selected in advance or even on the day.
We would like to see kids v kids, women vs women, men vs men, free style and any other combination.
Get thinking, get together and pull for the village and more importantly a small donation to a charity event.
