2017: Another Great Day Out for All the Family
One of our headline attractions for 2017 is the Falconry School, returning after its popularity in 2016. The birds will be on display throughout the day, with a flight display to show off their skills. Also returning from 2016 are the ever-popular Giant Slide, Bouncy Castle and inflatable Wipeout.
Among the new additions to attractions on the field this year, we have an inflatable Treasure Island Pirate Ship! On stage, performances will be given from Stardust Majorettes, who are a baton-twirling troupe based in the Midsomer Norton area. The troupe started about 21 years ago, and currently have approx. 40 girls in total. We are delighted to welcome them back after 2016 and a successful carnival season.
For the first time, we also welcome a display from Jamie Woodlands Black Belt Academy. This is a full time martial arts group from Radstock, specialising in taekwondo, kickboxing, sports martial arts, "little ninjas" and weapons training. Crowd pleasers from Avon Dance Academy and the Timsbury Theatre Group will also be taking to the stage.
The Fun Day Raffle has some amazing prizes lined up for this year, including a balloon flight for two, so make sure you come along and buy your ticket!
Finally, we can't forget to mention our "Fun Day Fun" Foto Competition. We hope you will all get involved, and enter your best pictures!
After a fantastic closing performance at the 2016 Fun Day, we are delighted to welcome back Charlie Allen to start the day this year. Ex-international performer (I Love the 70s, ABBA Forever) Charlie was born for the stage, and is set to wow our crowds.
With music from David Bowie, Marc Bolan and Elton John, the whole set will make you want to sing along and dance around your handbags - which we encourage!
Folk Lift Truck
Founding members Scott Boulton and Wyn Lloyd (banjo) were joined in 2016 by Steve Long (bass), David Trethewey (guitar) and Jamie Simmons (fiddle). The band sets out to play covers with a rock grass twist and to get the audience dancing and singing.
After receiving some great reviews and local radio airplay, the group are looking forward to help Timsbury rock! The village is their virtual home, providing the location for their weekly practice sessions.
Out 'N' Running
Out 'N' Running are a four-piece fun-packed cover band who do songs from 50s-era rock 'n' roll through to modern-day rock/pop from various artists, with their very own out 'n' running twist!
Established for over a decade, the current line-up includes Dave Brassington, Chris Harvey, Johnny Edgar and Chris Hillcock.
