Green Days Fete and Craft Fair

Maggie Philbin OBE, former presenter of Tomorrow's World and Bang Goes the Theory, opened the 2017 Bedford Park Festival on Saturday June 10th. Thousands of people joined us for two days of fun at our traditional Green Days Fête and Craft Fair. There were sunflowers everywhere to celebrate our Golden Jubilee - including a competition for the tallest sunflower at the plant stall.

This year's Green Days Fete & Craft Fair took place on June 10th and 11th on Acton Green, from 11am to 6pm on Saturday and 11.30 to 5.30 on Sunday.  There was be the usual fantastic mix of stalls and entertainment - 5-a-side football, Children's Corner, Fancy Dress Parade, the Fuller's Beer Tent, Refreshments, Bands and choirs, Bric-A-Brac, Win-A-Meal, Books, Plants, Cakes, Cycle Zone and much more. Plus Mass on the Green at 10.30 on Sunday.

The Bandstand

At the heart of Green Days is the Bandstand, which is the focus for live music and many events. There will be a variety of talented acts which will perform throughout the weekend.  The full 2017 line-up is here.

Craft Fair

We are thrilled to host 20 different exhibitors offering a wide selection of high-quality craftworks to buy or commission.  You can see the 2017 Craft Fair Stalls here.

Food and Drink

You certainly won’t go hungry or thirsty! There will be a beer tent serving Fuller’s beer, Pimm’s, cider and soft drinks; a Sipsmith stall; a Wine Rack prosecco stall; a refreshment tent serving lunches, snacks, Fairtrade tea and coffee, delicious cakes, strawberries and cream teas; a barbecue with burgers and hot dogs; bacon butties, pancakes, salads, sweets and an ice cream van.

Stalls and Funfair

Activities will include fairground rides, skittles, a coconut shy, beat-the-goalie and a children’s corner. Other stalls will sell plants, toys, books, bric-a-brac and more, plus the Sunday Stalls. At the St Michael and All Angels stand, you will find information about the church, the Festival and the charities, as well as Festival merchandise for sale.

Children

As well as all other activities, children can visit the children's corner, will be able to take part in, or watch, the junior 5-a-Side Football tournaments and the Fancy Dress Parade. The full list of children’s events throughout the 2017 Festival will be listed here.

Competitions

Tickets will be on sale for the Win-a-Meal competition, the High Roller Tombola and the Champagne Lottery. The Photographic Exhibition and Competition will be on display in St Michael & All Angels Parish Hall throughout the Green Days weekend.  The competitions throughout the 2017 Festival are listed here - watch for updates!

Family Cycle Zone and Electric Vehicle Zone

The Family Cycle Zone has so far had five hugely successful years at Green Days. And this year, as we look to The Next 50 Years as part of our Golden Jubilee celebrations, we are introducing an Electric Vehicle Zone.

Make Every Day a Green Day

We aim to clear up and recycle waste on the Green and help the environment.
