All the fun of the village fete


The Village Fete is an unashamedly old fashioned event, with traditional stalls, side shows and games all within the grounds of Layer Marney Tower. This year we also have the Companye of Merrie Folke at the Fete, a Tudor domestic re-enactment group who will entertain visitors.
