Children's charity to get boost from milestone festival at historic pub

FAMILIES are being invited to celebrate a landmark moment for an historic south Warwickshire village pub while also helping raise vital funds for a children’s charity

‘Fleur Fest’ takes place at the Fleur de Lys in Lowsonford this weekend (June 29 and 30) and is licensees Nick and Emma Woodhouse way of saying thank you to the community which has supported them since arriving in the village ten years ago this month.

‘Fleur Fest’ promises a host of entertainment and activities throughout the weekend, from live musicians and performers – including stilt walkers and bubbleology – to craft and circus skills workshops, market and charity stalls and a dog show with prizes.

The event is supporting Warwick charity Molly Ollys, and its founder Rachel Ollerenshaw will be on hand to raise awareness and sell raffle tickets across the two days.

Emma said: “Fleur Fest is our way of saying thanks to friends and fans of the Fleur. Our anniversary is very much something that we wish to celebrate because so few small businesses make it to their ten-year anniversary. So many hospitality businesses, particularly after the last few years, are struggling.

“It’s also a great excuse to have a bit of a party because it’s been such a such a miserable few years for a variety of reasons. It’s a celebration of all the things that

this lovely pub offers. And Rachel from Molly Ollys is a beloved friends of so many of our locals so I wanted to support them too.”

Fleur Fest runs from noon to 8pm. Click here for further festival and ticket details.
