Teversham Feast bounces back to life after more than 20 years





The Teversham Feast, which ties in with the old pea harvest, was held on the village green on Saturday (8 June) for the first time in 24 years.

The Teversham Primary School choir opened the event, The Blue Skies big band performed, and there were also stalls, games, fancy dress, races for children and more.

Allyson Robinson, one of the organisers, said the event was “absolutely fabulous”.

“The games stalls sold out of prizes, the band was fabulous and we had kids winning prizes for pea shooting,” she said.

“I think everybody really enjoyed themselves. We’ve had some really good comments – everybody kept coming up and saying ‘Thanks very much for organising this’ so I think all in all it was a very good day.”

Despite initial concerns over grey clouds, the weather held and the ice cream van sold out.

“We had bales of hay set out, and chairs, the Tamarind restaurant was serving food and we had the headteacher from Teversham Primary School organising some fun races,” added Allyson,

“We had a pea-on-a-spoon race, activity races, and we had green space hopper races, so the pea theme really worked!”

It is hoped it will return next year.
