Summer Village Festival Fun

Because we are hoping to move house shortly, we aren’t doing any of the Summer festivals that are happening at the moment around the South West Herts, South Bucks, Middlesex area (boo!), which are usually a great business opportunity. As we had a free Saturday today, we decided to check out not one but TWO summer fests to see what they’re like:

First we went to the Feast of St Peter on Chalfont St Peter common, which had lots of stalls, including a craft tent, (where some of our friends from Chalfont Crafty Collective were exhibiting), a performance stage, a petting zoo, heavy horses from the Chiltern Open Air Museum and a fun fair. It has been a sweltering week, but today the weather was a lot cooler, with the threat of showers, but thankfully they pretty much held off. Bought some local Chorleywood honey, which I hope will help keep hayfever at bay…

Then we went to the slightly larger  Croxley Revels at Croxley Green, which had a lot more stalls and a big performance area in the middle of the green. Our first ever ‘market home’ Little Fox Market was there, and we caught up briefly with Kathryn of Glowbeads (see some of her work below). The sun started to beat down quite strongly as we were walking around, so we ducked into the shade as soon as we could! Bought some locally made fudge!
