Two differences this year – it’s on a Sunday and it will be held at the Jack Adams Field, by the Cricket Club in Tower Road.

For those of you who are newer to the village, this land was generously gifted to Coleshill villagers by the late Jack Adams in 1983. His father was the ‘Adams’ of Adams Park in High Wycombe, and Jack lived in Longfield in Village Road for many years until his death.

His intention was that the field should be used for the recreation of all residents of the village, and so it seems an appropriate place for us all to gather together.

The plans for the Festival include an afternoon and an early evening session.

The afternoon will run from 2-5pm and will include:


The Village Show

Amersham Brass Band

Outdoor games like Giant Jenga, Croquet and Boules

Cheeky Monkey Children’s Entertainer

Pimm’s Tent

Tea and Cake


 And from 5-8pm there will be live music provided by Coleshill favourites Straight 8, as well as a Bar run by the Cricket Club and a Barbecue manned by the Tennis Club.

The team would particularly like to thank everyone who helped with and supported the Race Night on April 28th, which raised a magnificent sum of £1535 to cover the costs of the entertainment and other expenses (marquee hire etc) enabling us to make the Festival free to everyone in the village on the day – apart from anything you might want to spend on food and refreshments.

The schedule booklet for this year’s show is being delivered with your newsletter – thank you to our deliverers for the extra work.

For those of you new to Coleshill, the Show is a chance to show us some of your talents – whether in baking, photography, crafts or growing things. But it’s also a chance to have some fun, try something new and possibly win a cup.

This year, we have significantly reduced the number of classes to make it easier to work your way through the schedule – but the old favourites are still there, such as the Men’s Rock Cakes (hotly contested!), and the tallest weed.

The Show has now become a regular part of our Village Festival, and will take place at the same time and place at the Jack Adams Field by the Cricket Club.

Details of how to enter are in the booklet, but please note a couple of things:

• There is the option to enter online, via a form on the village website

• All your actual entries can be brought to our marquee in the Jack Adams Field on Sunday July 2nd 10-11.30am.
