Shenley Fete 2018: Information

Sunday 1st July 2018 From 12.0pm

 The Fete this year will be on Sunday July 1st. As usual it will start at 12.0pm.

We aim to make it an inexpensive and fun family afternoon out. Entry is only £1 for adults and 50p for children. In central arena we will have our very popular dog show and children’s races and our main attraction – The Essex dog Show. You can check these guys out on Youtube or on their website



With 10 breeds of dogs and their handlers, the team carry out 2 x 30 minute displays. The many different exercises demonstrated show they are not just a dog agility team. Britain’s longest established and leading dog display team leave nothing to chance when it comes to giving the audience an outstanding display with a truly unique and fascinating commentary.

All the dogs in the display team are trained at the Essex Dog Training Centre, Brentwood which two years ago was voted by the public ‘The Best Dog Training Facility in the UK’.


It will be great fun! All our favourite attractions will be there as well, including Bungee Jumping, the Bouncy Castle, Hamster Rollers and Wipe out with electric Go-Karts and our very own local Ferrets. The stalls include those run by many local businesses with Ice cream and Candy Floss and sensibly priced food run by the Fete Committee.

We are always looking for helpers, particularly on the day. Suggestions and ideas are all very welcome. Give me a call and I will give you details of our next committee meeting.

It promises to a great day out so please put the day in your diary now. We look forward to seeing you there!

See below for details of how to have a stall at the Fete. It’s inexpensive and it would be fun!

Would you like a Fete stall?

Are you interested in having a stall at Shenley’s popular village Fete this year?   Our Fete is held on Harris Lane Playing Field and this year will be on Sunday 1st July starting at 12 noon and lasting  until 4.45pm. Attendance is always extremely good with visitors coming from outlying towns and villages. We have a good reputation for being friendly, traditional and not overly commercial. All our profit after expenses is donated to local clubs and good causes – we were able to donate £5,200 last year.

Pitches cost £25 for general stalls and £10 for Charity stalls (you need to be a registered Charity).

Pitches are 15ft x 15ft or 4.57m x 4.57m – No tables, gazebos or electricity are provided.

 If tables are needed hire tables can be ordered at a cost of £8.50 per table.

Businesses need to contact me as commercial rates are different.

To book a pitch please contact Nicky Beaton by email: or call mobile no:  07976 872668. To secure a slot it is a good idea to book well in advance as we try to ensure a good variety of stalls and do not take multiple bookings of similar types of stalls ie. cake, jewellery or tombola stalls.

Best wishes.

Guy Beaton.

About Shenley Village Fete

Over recent years Shenley Fete has gone from strength to strength and has seen a steady increase in visitors, helped very much by a keen group of volunteers.

The Fete has two main goals:

  1. To give everyone a great day out
  2. To maximise donations to local charities and good causes.

Our charitable donations have been increasing every year as the fete has grown. After Fete expenses, all our income is used for donations.

Don’t forget to put the Fete in your diary.

We always need volunteers on Saturday as well as Sunday morning to assist with setting up the Fete in the playing fields so please get in contact if you can help.

Many Thanks To…
