2019 Feast events

In  2015 the Buckby Feast organising committee took the decision to make the Feast Day celebrations (usually on August Bank Holiday Monday) a biennial event. In 2018 we ran the Feast Day events, and in 2019 we will again run a cut-down version of the events, as we did in 2015 and 2017.

Here is a reminder of the 2018 Feast Day…

This year we will not be throwing sponges at Nathan!
