Tintern Village Fete - Welcome

This year's event takes place on June 24th at Leytons Field, Tintern, NP16 6TE. Of course there will be sunshine. It has already been ordered for the day.

With a great line up of entertainments being added to as the day approaches, you can keep up to date by visiting the site regularly and looking in the attractions pages for details of live music, kids' entertainments, arts and crafts stalls and much more. The theme is myths and legends this year, which abound in the area, so there is plenty of scope to get in the spirit of things.

We now have a schedule of events that will be happening throughout the day
