Celebrate 250 Year Of The Circus At Shiptonthorpe Village Fete

Organisers of a fete that will take place in an East Yorkshire village this month are promising a fun-filled day of music and entertainment.

Fete in the Field will take place at Shiptonthorpe playing fields, Station Road, between 11am and 4pm on June 30.

The free, circus themed event features a packed programme that combines entertainment from local musicians and artists with circus skills workshops and an all-day beer festival supported by The Goodmanham Arms and All Hallows Brewery that will feature local beers.

Sancton singer songwriter, Frankie Turton will open the event with a performance at 11.30am. She will be followed by a range of performers including the The Juke Joint Kings; Magic Ball Man; Dogfinger Steve; Crispian Brigham; The Bertie Set; Red Sky Ukuleles and Starbrite Dance Studios. The last performance, by Humberside and Yorkshire ACF Band, is scheduled for 3.40pm.

Musical acts performing on the day have been specially selected for the event, with a focus on both up-and-coming and well-established acts.

Fete committee chair Sue Beadle said: “Our daytime fete is free for everyone and we’re hoping to attract a large crowd.

“2018 is the official year of the circus, so we have lined up free circus and juggling workshops, performances from the legendary Magic Ball Man and a best dressed clown competition.

“There will also be children’s games and a tug of war, organised by Market Weighton Young Farmers, a dog show, a produce show, classic cars, food stalls and face painting – all of the elements of a traditional village fete.”

Multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Frankie is delighted to be returning the Fete in the Field stage:

“It’s great to be doing something quite local to me, and I’m hoping to see a few familiar faces. I’ll be playing several original songs with my ukulele and covers with my guitar.”

Sue Beadle concluded: “Our daytime fete is free for everyone and we’re hoping that the sun shines for a lovely event. Fete in the Field will be followed by the Folk in the Field festival, to be held on the same site, with gates opening at 5pm.”

The Folk in the Field line-up includes Market Weighton singer songwriter, Evie Barrand; The Nick Rooke Band; Edwina Hayes; French born musician, Flossie Malavialle and The Jon Palmer Acoustic Band. The compère for the evening will be ’s cigar box maestro, Dogfinger Steve.
