Bookham Village Day 2021


Come and enjoy Bookham Village Day on Bank Holiday Monday 30 August.

After last year’s traditional event in June had to be cancelled due to the pandemic, a smaller event with no parade is being organised so everyone can get out again and have some fun.

From mid-day in the field behind the Old Barn Hall in Church Road there will be stalls, sideshows and games, refreshments of all kinds including an even bigger open air bar with a great selection of real ales, Taste of Texas hot food, Manteo’s ice cream and lots of music including Band from the Pub.

A children’s fancy dress competition with a nursery rhymes theme will take place in the arena at 12.30pm, just turn up and take part. Group entries are also welcome.

Other attractions so far include the ever popular small animals from Bocketts Farm which the children can pet, and Village Day favourites Punch and Judy.

While this year’s event could be affected by new government restrictions organisers Bookham Community Association hope it will be a great day out for everyone to meet up and enjoy themselves.

Chairman Keith Slark said:  “We couldn’t go ahead with Village Day on the original date in June because of restrictions but wanted to bring back some form of Village Day to celebrate being able to get back together again.  And by delaying till August hopefully social distancing will be long gone”.

“But we do need help. A group of friends who could run the bric-a-brac stall or the popcorn, candyfloss and drinks stall.  If you could lend a hand at any time during the day it would be a great help”.
