The Dunchurch Festival Group not only organizes the Village Fête but also a number of other events throughout the year; so why not look at our Events section, or use the links on the left of this page.
Funds raised from these events are fed back into the community. If you would like to help out, generally get involved or request funding please contact us.
Over the last 10 years through the fete and other events we have donated over £60,000 to local good causes.
- Last year's fete raised £4,830 - Not bad for a rainy day!
Thank you to everyone who contributed by helping out, attending and so helping to raise this money for local causes!
If you are an organization in Dunchurch you could qualify for funding, just tell us about the project you want the grant to go towards and we will consider making a donation towards it. Applications for funding from the Dunchurch Festival Group must be made by the end of September.

Pantomaniacs - Making A Difference
When Dennis Gall's riser chair was showing distinct signs of age it was timely that old friends from the Dunchurch Pantomaniacs made an approach to wife Pam, herself an ever-present in the 28 years of Pantos staged by the group, to see if there was any way they could help. Dennis has faithfully attended all the shows to keep an eye on Pam's performances , in which she is almost invariably teamed up with sister Rose, singing, dancing and generally fooling around.
Pam and Dennis are immensely grateful to the Pantomaniacs for their kindness in funding the chair which will help Dennis to be comfortable and able to transfer from wheelchair to riser and vice versa so much more easily. Out photo shows Dennis seated in his new char with Pam looking on.
Thank you to all Pantomaniac audiences and supporters for enabling us to help.
Dunchurch’s Annual Progressive Supper is a very sociable event and more about meeting new people in the village, catching up with old friends and having a good time, rather than the food.
Saturday June 11th 2016…….
This year’s Progressive Supper will follow the same format as previous years, but without the England match this time.
All you will need to do is provide one course (starter, main or dessert) with wine, for either 6 or 8 adults (including yourselves). The idea is that the food should be quick, simple and prepared in advance, as everyone involved moves to a different location for each course. It is NOT a cooking competition! Feel free to make your own course if you are happy to do so but the supermarkets also have a great range! For first timers, you can choose which course you would like to prepare.
The format for the evening.........
We all meet together at the beginning of the evening at someone’s house, for drinks and nibbles.
The middle part is the adventure.....you will be told where you are going for each course as the evening progresses (you will only know the venue for your own course). At each house you will have your meal with different people. Again, you won’t know who until you get there!
The only requirement is that you live in Dunchurch, so that you can walk/cycle to each house. The cost is £10 per couple.
You will be told which course you are doing by Sunday June 8th and where you will start the evening.
If you would like to be involved, please complete the form by Saturday May 28th.
If you would like further information, please give Fiona a ring on 813348.
If you want to be involved in this event or are just not sure what a progressive supper is, you can get additional details of the evening here.
