Mon 20th May 2019 : Marvellous Meadfest!
This weekend's Friends of The Mead's 'event of the year' Meadfest: The Greatest Show was a huge success, enjoyed by Mead families, friends and neighbours.
The outside area of the school was completely transformed into a colourful, circus themed festival complete with food trucks, bar, retro fairground games, craft and face painting tents, huge inflatable obstacle course and the central focus of the day - the Meadfest main stage in the colourfully decorated marquee.
Meadfesters relaxed on colourful deckchairs and picnic blankets with their friends and families, soaking up the festival vibe and enjoying the funky tunes of headlining band Groove 101 as well as a beautiful harp and flute duo from Victoria Longhurst and Nicky Catterwell and brilliant performances from our school choir and newly formed school orchestra.
The Meadfest bar and gold sponsors The Abergavenny Arms made sure Meadfester's thirsts were kept quenched throughout the afternoon and delicious food was provided by Pizza Cuccina, Fritto & Via and the Tin Canteen. Later in the afternoon there was much excitement as the the lucky winners of the Meadfest raffle were announced with some fantastic prizes given out.
Enormous congratulations to Friends of The Mead, lead by Chair Emma Kent, for organising such an amazing social fundraiser for the Mead community. A huge thanks to them and to all who came along yesterday and supported the event.
Huge thanks also to the businesses who sponsored the event: The Abergavenny Arms, Gabriella Fine Jewellery & Watches, NFU Mutual, Hattons, Julie Kenyon Independent Travel Agents, Loft and Maddisons Residential. Without their support events like Meadfest would not happen. Thanks also to Pied Piper for providing and running the inflatable obtacle course for the afternoon and Freckles and Fire for the fantastic craft activities for the children.
