Headed up by the indefatigable Sue Beadle with a dedicated army of supporters, Folk in the Field is a fundraising festival to support Shiptonthorpe village projects.  Britcom is delighted to be one of the sponsors to help deliver this event again this year.

Fete & Folk In The Field is this Saturday 29th June at the Shiptonthorpe Playing Fields.

The food & drink festival includes Colemans cider and beer from the Goodmanham Arms and foodwise there will be plenty of choice from hog roast, pizza, jerk chicken, vegan, pancakes, ice cream and much much more!
