The Summer Fest will be accompanied by live music performances by talented local artists including Hannah Faulkner, Hollie Marie, The Usual Suspects and Dan Hughes. Over in the kid’s zone, little ones and their grown ups can take part in an assortment of lawn games such as giant chess, hoopla, and archery. There will also be a sandpit for those looking to make the most of the summer vibes. Talks on meditation, spoken word and poetry, and comedy will inspire and entertain guests throughout the afternoon.

Excitement awaits visitors of all ages with a variety of activities available at the event. Children and adults alike can take part in glitter face painting, pottery making, and henna tattoos. For those seeking adventure, there will be medieval axe throwing and an array of fairground rides and inflatable slides to enjoy.

A diverse selection of local vendors will be present at the festival. Attendees will have the opportunity to browse through stalls offering unique and high-quality products from Friars Farm, Nicki’s Pantry, Brown Bear, Harkers Fudge, Daily Bread, Fig Home and more. With such a wide range of goods available, festivalgoers are sure to find something special for themselves or a loved one.

No festival would be complete without an enticing array of refreshments. Delapré's Summer Fest will feature food and drink vans including Your Cool’s signature artisan ice-cream, Martha’s Crepes, Caribbean cuisine from Fud and Bubble Events for drinks and nachos.

As the evening progresses, the festivities will continue with more live music where guests can enjoy cocktails and mocktails from Muddled Lime around the fire pit within the picturesque grounds of the historic Abbey.
