Terrington Festival 2007

Organised by Terrington Arts to mark its 10th anniversary, the Festival was held from Friday 22 June to Sunday 1 July 2007. Many individuals and groups in the village were involved in organising and staging this very ambitious celebration helping to make it hugely successful with over 2000 people attending events from the very varied offering.
It included an opening concert by the village choir and children from Terrington School, a historical walk around the village led by John Goodwill and Gerry Bradshaw, a cabaret-style evening, art and lino printing workshops, wine tasting, a textile and craft exhibition, a "Cartoon History of Terrington" by Ian McMillan and Tony Husband, film clips from the Yorkshire Film Archive, a family sports day, a Waterson Carthy concert, a "Taste of Thai Culture" put on by the Thai restaurant at the Bay Horse Inn, a barn dance, a "10 years of Terrington Arts" exhibition, a display of flowers in the church, and open gardens with a scarecrows competition plus music provided by singers and organists in the Church, the Village Hall and around the gardens.
A recipe book compiled for the Festival entitled 'A Taste of Terrington' was on sale.
A CD 'Sounds of Terrington' was also made for the Festival with tracks from both schools, the choir, the band, Terrington Players and ambient sounds.
