ORGANISERS are gearing up for one of the most eagerly-anticipated events in Petworth’s calendar – the Fete in the Park.

This year is the ninth fete and promises to live up to its reputation as a great day out for the whole family, with dozens of attractions.

Held in the glorious setting of Petworth Park, the event will run from midday-5.30pm on Saturday, July 12.

There will be charity and commercial stalls, a dog show, a classic car and tractor parade, fun fair, a tea tent with cream teas, hog roast, strawberries and cream and a bar.

Entertainment will include classical Indian dancing by the Bharatanatyam Dance Group, Appalachian clog dancing by Knickerbocker Glory, circus acts by Johnny Slap and talented young singers from Petworth Primary School.

The highlight of the day will be a first world war cavalry re-enactment by Skinner Horses.

There will also be a live National Trust archaeological dig for visitors to view.

The event is organised by the Petworth and District Community Association with the support of the National Trust.

Entry and parking are free.
