MUSIC, FOOD, PERFORMANCE
Celebrating our new premises as well as the arrival of autumn, we welcome back the fantastic Cask Strength Ceilidh Band Following their appearance at our 5th birthday party one person described them as "simply the best ceilidh band ever". Supporting them will be local band Les Vieux, who love to play and sing the French-language Cajun music of South West Louisiana - lively two-steps and plaintive waltzes on button accordion, fiddle and acoustic guitar. We'll also be having some spoken word and other performers as well as a delicious feast of seasonal food.
To help meet the cost of putting on the event, this year's Harvest Festival is ticketed. For adults tickets are £7 and for children/concessions just £2.50. (Children aged under 5 go free)
When & Where
Woodlands Community Garden
Woodlands Community Development Trust is a small local charity, whose work is having a big impact. Our Community Garden supports over 50 families to grow their own food and our volunteer training programmes have helped people learn new skills, reduce their isolation and further develop the garden as a therapeutic space. Our Community Café’s inclusive approach has enabled people from diverse backgrounds to work together collaboratively and enabled us to restore a sense of community and solidarity. Woodlands Community Garden has grown more than just food, it has grown a community. It is a vibrant outdoor community centre – a wonderfully therapeutic space that helps people to recover from the stresses and strains of every day life. Linked to the garden, our community café serves up more than just food. Pioneering an alternative approach to food banks that centres around a shared meal, we have reduced the stigma of accessing food aid and this year served up over 3600 healthy meals. The food at the café is shared and in that sharing everyone is made to feel equal.
