August 27 // Summer Fête at Saint Alban’s Church
If you’re looking for fun, frivolity and festivities for all the family, then head to Churchillparken on Saturday 27 August for the Saint Alban’s Church Summer Fête.
This annual event, which is now in its 25th year at its current location, brings a traditional English summer fête to Copenhagen every August. With everything from stalls packed with home-made treats, British goods and English-language books through to a bouncy castle, children’s entertainment, music and dancing there is something for everyone to enjoy.
The priest at Saint Alban’s, the Revd Darren McCallig, expects this year’s event to the biggest and best ever. “We have really pulled out all the stops this year,” he says. “It is, after all, our 25th anniversary, so in addition to all the stalls, BBQ area, and beer and tea tents, we have also organised a lively and varied entertainment programme.”
“Performers on the day will includes Finney’s Jazzmen, a very popular local group who play a wonderful mix of jazz evergreens, blues and gospel. There’s also the Jane Austen Dancers, organ soloists, bagpipers, drummers, bell ringers and singers. You won’t want to miss it!”
“So, if you enjoy browsing stalls in search of bargains, or picking-up some books and handcrafted gifts, or stocking up on marmalades for the year, then do come along on and join us on Saturday 27 August from 10.00 to 17.00. The Summer Fête is also a great opportunity to spend time with old friends or make some new ones. All in all, it’s going to be a great day with something for everyone.”
