Lemsford Fete has a strong vintage feel with a mixture of stalls, old fashioned games, mouth-watering food and drink, and entertainment to enjoy.
After the massive success of the previous years’ line ups we are pleased to welcome back the immensely popular local ale beer tent and teddy bear zip wire. For the latter, children are encouraged to bring their own teddy for an exciting ride from the top of St John’s Church tower with a certificate to take away.
Lemsford Local History Group is offering a graveyard tour for visitors to Lemsford Fete.
They have researched the lives of some of the people buried in the St John’s Churchyard, and will be featuring a brief story of their lives on the graves.
Some of these people are well known, some are Hertfordshire dignitaries, but most are simply local people whose fascinating stories will resonate with readers.
There is also a quiz for people to take part in, with a book token prize for the winner. Anyone wanting further information can see more at www.lemsfordhistorynews.co.uk/LF2019.html
LLHG representatives will be on hand on the day to help with further information. LLHG will also have a display in the School Hall, looking at the history of the churchyard. This will also feature the graves of local people who died in the First World War.

- Live music
