Horticultural and Dog Show

Hartfield Village Fete 2020 – Save The Date

This year the Hartfield Village Fete will be held on Saturday 5th September 2020 in conjunction with Hartfield Horticultural Society show.

A warm welcome awaits you when you arrive at the Hartfield Village Fete Horticultural & Dog Show ready to enjoy a full afternoon’s entertainment. The Town Croft is a picturesque location situated in the lovely Sussex country village of Hartfield, home of Winnie the Pooh.

Our fete grows in popularity each year and has earned a reputation for being one of the best around. Proceeds are distributed to help our local groups and societies. Last year a fantastic sum of £12,000 was given out.

Disabled facilities are of course available but even if you are a blue badge holder you must still apply to the Fete Committee in advance, giving your car registration number as such spaces are in very short supply and you will not be allowed onto the Croft without such a pass.

Hartfield Village Fete 2019


The spacious marquee will house a fantastic array of flowers and produce together with amazing crafts and photographic exhibits. Entry forms for all categories will be available at Hartfield Village Stores including some for children. The popular dog show with many classes always attracts many entries. The Doggie Dash and Doggie Hide & Seek returns – enormous fun for both dogs and owners.


Why not start with a refreshing drink from our well-stocked bar and linger there whilst you meet and chat with friends old and new. Feast on the succulent choice from the BBQ with vegetarian options or perhaps choose a lighter meal from a selection of salad and quiches. As the afternoon wears on, just imagine sitting relaxing with a refreshing cuppa whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings and tucking into a selection of truly scrumptious homemade teas and cakes.


We will be confirming our childrens entertainment acts soon.

Last year we included High Voltage Entertainment with Stilt Walker, Fire Eater and Magic Shows. Chrissie Face-painter, Helter Skelter, Old time Fairground Rides, Maypole dancing by St. Mary’s school. Children’s races, Beat the Goalie, Space Hoppers, Active Play and lots of side shows suitable for children as well as quieter activities in some of the gazebos.


This year we hope to have around thirty diverse commercial stalls all offering individual, attractive goods for sale. Local village groups will be running the ever popular side shows including bottle tombola, plants, cakes, books, children’s toys, good clothing and bric-a-brac etc.


We will be confirming all of our wonderful entertainment soon but we are sure to have Morris Dancers performing and watch out for the vintage vehicles and steam engines. We also hope to have returning the Nigel Bagge Band with the sound of “roots & blues with a touch of country, soul and rock and roll” will echo melodiously around the ground.


Several meaningful cash prizes and a variety of other exciting prizes to be won.
