Theale Village Summer Fete 2024

7 July @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Planning is well underway for the village fete on Sunday 7th July!  The fun kicks off from 12 Noon on Theale Recreation Ground.

You are guaranteed an afternoon of entertainment with fun for all the family will be on offer including children’s fairground rides, inflatables and our Community Games area, sponsored by Berkshire Youth Football League, which will feature a range of traditional games including the ever-popular coconut shy, lucky dip, and hook a duck. Arena displays from local community groups include JG Dance, C & M Gymnastics, CT Martial Arts, Theale Primary School and Theale Green. Theale Social Club will also be open so grab a refreshing beverage and enjoy some music from local bands in our Live Music Marquee, including local rising star Zoe Badman who will be performing her latest songs.

Our craft, art, photography and baking competitions are returning once again. This year’s baking competition is kindly sponsored by Kütchenhaus Reading, who will also be helping to judge and providing some fantastic prizes for the lucky winners including a £100 lego voucher for the Under 12’s category! Our dog show will also be back, kindly sponsored and organised by Ruff n Rumble Dog Walking. Entry forms for all our competitions can be downloaded from the parish council web site, www.thealeparishcouncil.gov.uk.

Local businesses and groups are also getting involved in the fete with Berkshire Youth Football League proud to be the headline sponsors for this year’s fete!  We have also had some very generous donations for our Grand Raffle with some fantastic prizes on offer including £150 cash as our first prize, courtesy of Arlington Business Park and a Bosch 3 in 1 Kitchen Mixer courtesy of Kütchenhaus Reading. Lots of independent traders will be at the fete offering a wide variety of crafts and gifts. A number of local charities will also have stalls at the fete, including Motor Neurone Disease Association and Carebus Community Transport – find out more about their work in the local community and how you can help support them by donating or holding a fundraiser or through volunteering with them.

The parish council is actively encouraging all of Theale’s residents to get involved as an event of this scale takes a huge amount of organising! We are recruiting volunteers to help with planning the event as well as on the day itself – can you spare an hour or two on the day to help with setting up, parking, running stalls, selling raffle tickets and tidying up after the fete? If so. please get in touch via the volunteer sign up form in the events section of the parish council web site. Any helping hands are very much appreciated!

Do come down and join us for all the fun of the fete and help raise funds for local community groups and charities!
