Penshurst; an historic village linked with other local historic villages, receiving a very large number of visitors throughout the year, national and international, all enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
The Penshurst Village Fete this year is to be held on Sunday June 11th 2017 from 12pm - 4pm, The setting is fabulous, a filiming location for many historical movies and television programs such as Wolf Hall, The Other Boleyn Girl, Pen and has been used as a filming location for a number of blockbuster film and hit TV productions.
The historic backdrop, largely unchanged for 670 years combines with the warmth of a much-loved family home, with amazing grounds and a stunning view. Essentially, it's a beautiful place to spend a fun filled day, with lot's of activity, events and facilites combined with the spectacular backdrop, it really does feel rather special!
Our last fete had an attendance figure of approximately 2,500+ attendees. Plus the concessions (taking the figure nearer to 3,000) and this year we hope for much more, so it's a fantastic platform for public community engagement, with many families present.
In addition to residents form the community and it's surrounding villages, we had in attendance a local mayor, a dame who is also a double olympic champion awarding our prizes, local politicians,a speech to close the fete read on behalf of a Knight Commander of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (due to travel hold-ups), and many persons of note in the community.
The sponsorship we get enables us to offer greater facilities and we can provide or subsidise acitivities and entertainment. For example, at our last fete we paid in advance so the archery was free to the public for the entire day to try as many times as they wished, in addition to some of the interactive classes and entertainment and the childrens crafts and activity tent. We were also fortunate enough to be successful in securing free books for all of the children attending regarding The Magna Carta as that was our theme at the time.
We have hopes for offering further facilites, and entertainment, we are a totally self-funded event and appreciate sponsorship from companies and brands who share our goals and values, support community and family values. We are proud of our community, of our country and those who keep us safe within. We encourage association and support from like-minded sponsors.
We are flexible in approach and happy to discuss in detail potential ways of working together to the benefit of our community.
