Feast Day with a Difference  -  8th August


A mini Feast on your own patch

Celebrate the Feast in your own Gardens

What does the Feast mean to You?








As you are aware the Feast we all know and love isn't happening this year due to Covid19 but we cannot let the day pass without some recognition.

We are asking residents to join us and create their own Garden Feast at their front doors or Gardens with 'whatever the Feast means to you' - home baked cakes, flower arrangements, a display of veg, flowers, toys made from plastic, cutouts, afternoon tea, beer and beverages, dog lookalikes  - whatever elements are important to your enjoyment of Feast Day.


If come August 8th we are allowed to gather with social distancing, it might be that we can display our individual mini Feasts on our own 2 metre square of the Village Green.

Keep an eye out for further updates but please diary 8th August for 

'A Feast Day with a Difference'

Announcement regarding Kirkby Fleetham Feast events during 2020



Due to the COVID 19 Pandemic it has been necessary for the Kirkby Fleetham Feast Committee to take the decision to cancel all forthcoming Feast events. Unfortunately, this will affect the Feast events which lead to up to the Show Day, such as the Football, the Quoits, the Fun Run and the Quiz Night and, of course, the Show Day itself which this year was due to take place on Saturday 8th August.


We know everyone understands the reason for these cancellations and not staging the 119th Feast is a big disappointment for everyone involved. Nevertheless, we will continue to monitor the situation and the Committee are putting their heads together to come up with some inspirational ideas to hold some form of event at the earliest opportunity, and may even look to holding some alternative events during Feast Week, if appropriate and circumstances allow.


We as a committee are determined to support our community and when the time is right, to undertake and present social events so that the Feast as we know it can continue with its traditions. We hope you will support these events and we look forward to coming together again with everyone in a joint effort to enjoy the wonderful community of which we are part!


Stay safe and well until then.


The Feast Committee
