Petworth Fete in the Park set to break records

ORGANISERS are gearing up for one of the biggest dates on the Petworth calendar.

Petworth Fete in the Park, which takes place on Saturday, July 6, looks set to be packed with entertainment with everything from craft stalls to street theatre.

Performers including the Stilt Walking Jazz Players and the Gully Gully Man, who entertained crowds last year, will be making an appearance.

Petworth town band will be serenading visitors and there will be Appalachian clog dancing from Knickerbocker Glory and a performance from Petworth Primary School country dancers.

Dogs are also welcome to the event, and owners can take part in the fun dog show for £2.

There are also some new additions to this year’s fete – budding engineers can build their own cars using old CDs as wheels which will be raced down a track.

The new activity is open for everyone, with classes for children an adults.

There will also be craft stalls, charity stalls, a classic car parade, arena events, train rides, sideshows fairground rides and a raffle.

Gates will open at midday.

Organisers are calling anyone who wants a stall to get in touch as there are still pitches available. To find out more about Fete in the Park, book a stall or learn about the specification of the CD cars, call Tony Sneller on 01798 343124.
