The Ufton Village Fete is an annual tradition, aiming to raise funds for St Michael’s Church and the village of Ufton.
2018’s fete took place on Saturday 2nd June 2018.
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.
Find a bargain at our stalls – including books, plants, home-made provisions and our legendary bric-a-brac stall.
Try your luck with our raffles and tombolas.
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.
Entertainment will be provided by the Hereburg Morris troup and the Harbury Ukulele Group.
And what village fete would be complete without the children’s fancy dress, welly throwing, tug-of-war and (assuming we can find them in time) skittles competitions?

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. …
I’d prepared a pros and cons list for each of the proposed fete locations which I presented to the committee. By this time, the thought of arranging a road closure was not a particularly attractive proposition due to the closeness of the deadline for submitting the form, and also inconvenience to the residents. Fortunately, the …
