Feast Week

Feast Week 2020-05-15T12:29:36+00:00

Each year in late June, Whissendine hosts Feast Week, an ancient custom with its origins in the Middle Ages that entails a week of activities for the village. Feast Week events in recent years have included a 6-mile run, a Feast Week extravaganza, the knockout, scarecrow contests and a fête on the village green. Whissendine Feast Week committee would like to thank everyone that contributed to the planning of all the activities. A special thank you goes out to all those that have generously supported Feast Week events. All funds raised and donations received are used to support the village.
