Let’s try to support as many of these village events as possible this weekend and demonstrate that we’re a real, living community and not just a dormitory for commuters...
Tonight – At 19:30 this evening, there’s a ceilidh at the Millennium Memorial Hall in aid of Linking Arms with Rescued Kids (LARK). Tickets priced at £12.00 are available from Sue Hall on 01295 811527. A ploughman’s supper is included in the ticket price. Entry at the door will cost £15.00.
Saturday Evening (June 27) – At 17:30, doors open for the PTFA Family Bingo Night at King’s Sutton Primary Academy, which promises great fun for all the family with prize bingo books costing just £3.00.

Sunday (June 28)
Morning – There’s a Bring and Share Lunch at the Baptist Church Hall in aid of Linking Arms with Rescued Kids (LARK) after the morning service. Details from Ruth Champion on 01295 810981.
Afternoon – At 15:00, there’s another in the “Sounds Good” series of concerts at the Parish Church, this one called “Back to Bach”. A group of supremely talented King’s Sutton musicians along with Oxford tenor Felix Leach will feature in works by Johann Sebastian Bach as well as some of the composers he has inspired over the years such as Mendelssohn, Haydn, Brahms and others. Entry is free and there will be tea and cakes available.
Sunday afternoon also sees the Official Opening of the King’s Sutton Playpark on the Rec. It all kicks off at 14:30 with three children from King’s Sutton Primary Academy’s school council opening the Playpark at a ceremony attended by many of the people whose hard work, dedication and determination made this wonderful new village amenity a reality. Light refreshments will be provided for children from the village, and tea and coffee will be available for all. Everyone is invited to bring their own picnic to the event. Parking is available at the Millennium Memorial Hall for those who need it.
