Our first fête of the season was the Beenham Church fête, last Saturday. A typical early summer’s day, it drizzled, so we took up stations around the font, and played inside the ancient church. Well, the church is largely Victorian, it just looks older.
Our small audience seemed to enjoy their retreat, and we enjoyed playing them some of our old favourites - Hootenanny, Dambusters, Grease, and Pirates of the Caribbean - among others.
I can report Beenham church does a good cup of tea, served in tea-cup and saucer in our interval. The nearby cake stall looked good too, but unfortunately I could not afford the weight.
