All the fun of a village fete

ENJOY all the fun of a traditional village fete at Wallington’s Estate Village on Saturday.

Highlights include children’s races, quoits and football competitions and there will be a range of stalls.

The activities will take place from 1pm to 4pm – the village is approximately two miles from Wallington.

Tours will run between 11am and 4pm and all tickets are priced £2. Normal admission charges apply.
