Donhead St.Andrew 'All Weather' Church Fete 2019

At Stoney Hills Field, Sans Lane

Donhead St. Andrew SP7 9LL

St Andrew’s Church’s 2019 Fete will take place on Monday 26th August 2019 from 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm on Stoney Hills Field, Sans Lane, Donhead St Andrew SP7 9LL.

This annual fete is regarded as one of the best and largest traditional village fetes in Wiltshire, Dorset and Hampshire. The Fete takes place on Stoney Hills Field in Sans Lane, Donhead St Andrew SP7 9LL, with wonderful panoramic views across the countryside to the Cranbourne Chase and plenty of accessible safe parking for hundreds of cars. Last year the Fete attracted over 1,500 visitors, drawn from local villages and a large number from Shaftesbury, Tisbury, Salisbury and further afield.

Over 250 members of the Donhead St Andrew village community are involved in some way or another in putting on the Fete.

Fuller details of the event will be announced soon, but are expected to include:

  • Shaftesbury’s famous and ever-popular Bell Street Jazz Band, which has been playing at this event for very many years.
  • Classic Car and Bike Show from 1.00 pm to 4.30 pm with over forty vehicles
  • Our celebrated annual Dog Show at 3.30 pm with 10 classes

It all adds up to an afternoon of fun and enjoyment for all ages and it supports very worthy village, local and county causes. This year the Fete will be supporting Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Tisbus, The Happy Gathering Club and St Andrew’s Church’s work in the community.

The St Andrew’s Church Fete is protected from the weather by all the stalls and the catering and most of the amusements being under cover. It is an ‘All Weather’ Fete so if it rains on Bank Holiday Monday don’t be put off!

Sans Lane is off the A30 between Ansty and Ludwell. Just follow the signposts.
