The Ufton Village Fete is an annual tradition, aiming to raise funds for St Michael’s Church and the village of Ufton.
2019’s fete will take place on Saturday 1st June 2019.
The 2018 Ufton Village Fete was held on Saturday 2nd June 2018 from 2pm to 5pm at Greg’s Eggs, Lower Fox Farm, on the Ufton Crossroads towards Bascote Heath, CV47 2DN.
The quickest and most pleasant route is along the path that runs from the car park by the pub through Ufton Woods. There is an entrance to the fete via a gate directly on this pathway. (Click the map for more detailed directions).
There is plenty of free on-site parking for those choosing to arrive by car.
Stagecoach bus 665 (Leamington – Harbury – Southam – Napton) stops at Ufton Crossroads.
There’s something for everybody & lots for all the family to do.
This year we are privileged to have Tom Hingley (ex lead singer of 90s “Madchester” band Inspiral Carpets) providing the entertainment, alongside our perennial guests Hereburg Morris and the Harbury Ukulele Group.

Visit our tea tent for tasty home made cakes & teas.
There’s fun for the kids in the children’s area – with stalls and activities and a bouncy castle.
Our popular beer “lean-to” and hog roasts will also be returning, along with an ice-cream van for refreshment – which will be particularly welcome if we experience the same scorching weather as last year!
Work has been going on behind the scenes for this year’s fete – and now, with one month to go, things are really ramping up. We’re back for a second year at Greg’s Eggs and our theme this year is flight. We’ve confirmed some very exciting entertainment for this year, along with some new activities …
Did I mention that there’s a well-oiled team behind this? While I’ve been setting up this site, the committee have been busy. We’ve got the alcohol licence, so we can push ahead with the beer tasting tent. This is going to be an interesting offering, as Greg’s son is a keen brewer and beer enthusiast …
One of the subjects for the next meeting will be how we advertise the fete. One of our committee members has previously surveyed fete attendees to discover that the majority come from either the village, or neighbouring villages. The fete has previously relied on traditional ways of marketing the fete, using signposts and local newspapers. …
