V&A Summer Fete



Heck, it's been a busy few weeks. We've had our heads down, our noses to the grindstone, and our hands to our mouses. So apologies for the quiet. Normal service will now resume.


Speaking of which, this weekend sees the return of the ever wonderful V&A Village Fete, now in its tenth year, and it even looks like the weather might smile kindly on the event.


The fete is a designed-up version of a traditional village fete, this year with a theme of Jubilee. A whole host of design types, including Thomas Matthews, Johnson Banks and It's Nice That, will be manning stalls in the V&A garden.


It kicks off at 6pm on Friday, and again on Saturday at 12.30pm; £3 for adults, 50p for kids.
