Getting ready to party at Coughton Court

Leamington Editorial 16th Jul, 2023   0

NOT many summer fetes can boast a setting quite as historic as Coughton Court.

But the annual Village Summer Fete will be taking place at the National Trust property near Alcester on Saturday July 22.

The collaboration between the local community and Coughton Court is celebrating its eleventh year and visitors will find a variety of traditional stalls and games for the whole family to enjoy from noon to 4pm.

There will also be sports day games, a classic car display, a fun dog show and obstacle course, coconut shy and entertainment by local choirs. Food on offer will include a barbecue and a picnic area if visitors want to bring their own.

The cafe will also be open for visitors to enjoy a hot lunch, a cream tea or a traditional ice cream.

Claire Hancox, who organises the fete, said: “It’s fantastic to have such a great relationship with the Coughton community.

“Over the years we’ve raised thousands of pounds for the community and as well as being a great cause, it’s an opportunity for us all to get together and share a fun day out, hopefully with lots of sunshine.”

Entry to the fete, which will take place on Coughton’s front park, overlooking the house, is free.
