2018 Feast Events

For 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 2017 we again ran a cut-down version, as we did in 2015.

The good news is that the Feast events for 2018 will include the Feast day celebrations (on Bank Holiday Monday), and we are really looking forward to it.

Here are some photos from the Bank Holiday Feast events from 2016.

The planning for the all of these events has just begun, so please come back to this page later for more information.

The Feast committee will always welcome suggestions and offers to help plan and run the Feast, which is for the benefit of all the village. In the first instance please contact Hilary Tibbs (buckbynews@talktalk.net), Mary McElroy (marymcelroy@uwclub.net), or Janey Shemilt (janeyshem@gmail.com) and we will take it from there… many thanks in advance.
