Working Craft Area
Here you can try your hand at basket-making, willow sculpture, soap decoration, pottery-making, and learn from a range of traditional craft demonstrations.
The Great Bruton Drag Race – 3.00pm
This year our lovely ladies will be running to raise money for bereaved families. Michelle Southgate sadly lost her husband to cancer last year, leaving her with a young family to raise on her own. As she is a Bruton resident, this has touched many people locally. For this reason this year’s chosen charity is Sand Rose, a centre in Cornwall. The aim of Sand Rose is to provide free breaks for the bereaved, with particular emphasis on young families.
Sponsorship forms are available from Vince Evans at the Green Monkey, The Bruton Castle and The Sun Inn, or you can download one by clicking the link below. We urge you to find a frock and join in; it is a great cause and great fun in the process.
The Duck Race – 5.00pm
Charity Duck Race along the River Brue, organised by Hannah Ridley in aid of Childreach International. Sponsor a duck and gather at the Packhorse Bridge to watch the race: there are prizes for the first three over the finish line!
The Dog Show
