Event Details

Peter Tavy’s traditional village fayre is a fun afternoon out for all ages, held around the Village Hall and Methodist Chapel. The Bells of St Peter’s church will ring out to welcome visitors from far and near.

Seek out a treasure on the Granny’s Attic stall, and browse over the Books, Plants & Garden, Homemade Cakes & Jams stalls. Enjoy an ice cream and sit down to soak up the atmosphere over a tea or coffee, with scrumptious home-made savouries and cakes.

Try your luck on the Tombola stall or the Grand Raffle, with the star prize of a meal for two at the popular Peter Tavy Inn. Have a go on the coconut shy and skittle alley, or test your skill and have fun on some of the many other unique and intriguing games.

Back a duck in the annual Duck Race down the Colley Brook through the centre of the village – try to choose the winning duck, then head over to the bridge to watch the hotly-contested finale!

Enjoy the entertainment and the sheep shearing demonstration, or pop into the Village Hall to admire the skills of the young and old entrants in the many village fayre competitions – from cakes and flower arrangements to crafts, art and creative writing.

The Fayre is a great family afternoon out – a slice of traditional village life in which the whole community gets involved. All funds raised are split between Peter Tavy Village Hall, Church and Chapel.

The Fayre opens at 2.00pm on Bank Holiday Monday, following the running of the “Peter Tavy Plod” footrace and fun run, which starts in the centre of the village at 1.00pm.

Come along to enjoy all the fun of the fayre !
