Prebendal School Playing Fields, Chichester
The Rotary Club of Chichester organises a festival of music, dance, demonstrations, competitions, food and drink in Chichester. It allows folk groups to highlight their talents to a wider audience through providing the entertainment as well as giving a modern take on the traditional village fete. Entry is free. All the money raised goes to charity.
It is also home to Chichester's Famous Duck Race! There is to be a display of vintage motor cars. Chichester Model Engineers will bring their miniature train for rides. A jazz band will perform as well as the Littlehampton Ukelele Jam who will be welcoming any ukelele players to join in with them. There will be plenty of food and drink from beer and Pimms to tea and cake, a hog roast, burgers and home-made ice cream.
For further information please visit the website of the Rotary Club of Chichester.
