A record turnout of 4,000 people enjoyed the return of Brampton’s Village Fete with singing, dancing – and even a fun dog show. 

Revellers packed out the village green on Saturday afternoon (July 24) to browse more  than 30 stalls of arts, crafts, flowers and local produce. 

There were lots of stalls at the Brampton Fete on Saturdays and thousands of visitors.

Music from a swing jive band got everyone in the mood for dancing while children took part in fun races and a tug-of-war. 

Food for the event was provided by the Hare on the Green pub. 

Bryan Swain helped organise the event as part of the Brampton Events Team - who work tirelessly throughout the year to make the event a success.

It had been cancelled last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Mr Swain said: “It was such a fantastic day that was enjoyed by everyone.
