Chalgrove May Day Village Festival

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Sadly, we cannot hold the 2020 ChalgroVE75 Festival in person this year...but we CAN hold a Virtual Festival instead! Some of the best bits of the main festival will be streamed live on the Festival Facebook page. If you want to get involved, please go to the Chalgrove May Day Festival Facebook Page and join that group - all details will be posted there. You can join in the Virtual Dog Show, enter into the Best Dressed House/Garden and Best Costume competitions, and tune in to a selection of comedy and music from across the decades - and we will of course be observing the Last Post and National Toast at 3PM.

We will be back next year, hopefully bigger and better, and we do hope you will be able to join us for the full Festival experience.

The Chalgrove Village Festival and 10K Committees would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support for our events and to wish you well during these unprecedented times.

If you need any further information please contact:

Festival: info@chalgrovefestival.co.uk

10K: enquiries@chalgrovefestival10k.com
