A feast of live music, locally made crafts and produce, children’s entertainment and a pudn competition return for the annual Long Buckby Feast.

Thousands of people turn out for the feast week which begins at 7pm on Wednesday August 21 with a quiz night.

For the first time a special Feast Handbag Heaven evening will take place on Friday with BBC Radio Northampton’s Bernie Keith .

Hilary Tibbs, one of the feast organisers, said: “Bernie is an angel and has agreed to a night of disco for the feast. The tickets are just £5 from the newsagents and it will certainly be a good night.”

On Saturday the Elation Community Voices Choir will perform at the feast for the first time .

Organiser Sara Jelley said: “The choir were born at the feast last year and have since had massive success so it will be nice to see them perform.”

The grande finale takes place on Monday when stalls, live music, games and the ever popular feas pudn competition will take place in Market Place.

This year, Feast Day will also include a French Market run by the village’s twinning association to welcome Twinning partners from Damville, in Normandy.

As always funds raised from the feast will go to the Buckby Feast Trust set up to support good causes and charities associated within Long Buckby.
