Bollywood comes to Bakers Row: Harvest Festival East

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

All corners of the community have got involved in this year’s Harvest Festival East. We’ve had  dance group Tridhara, led by Showmi Das, showing us harvest dances from Bangladesh, Bollywood dances and getting visitors involved in their workshops. Young people from the National Citizen Service Team Perham have led apple dunking, egg and spoon races – and been first up to join the dancing. Quirky Nature have made their fresh-pressed juices. And congratulations to Freya for winning the apple tart competition!

A big Abbey Gardens thank you to our volunteer chefs, who made delicious quiches, soup and salads, to our bakers and helpers, to Cath French for publicity, to former volunteer Emma for bringing home-grown apples, to garden club leader Hamish for being on hand with gardening wisdom and to all of our garden and behind-the-scenes volunteers who work so hard to make Abbey Gardens the beautiful place it is.

Our next event will be our Winter Celebration on Saturday 5 December.
