Community Feast & Ceilidh

|    8.30pm - 11.30pm    |   

A BIG family day out of food, music, dancing and much much more.

Celebrate our contemporary community and culture in the old fashioned way of sharing, eating and dancing together. In a collective exuberance!

Bring your own picnic to a mediaeval-style feast. Long tables, people sharing with their friends and neighbours.

Bar available for the grown-ups. Musical and other entertainment throughout the feast.

After-food, all the fun of a village Ceilidh, provided by the hi-energy Jubilation Band. During the interval, international singer Katy Carr will take us on a nostalgic trip of well-known sing-a-long songs.

Ticket price allows you to come and go as you like, attending those parts of the event you want. The Feast will be preceded by a carnival-themed procession for children. Children under-10 are free with a paying adult.

Spaces in the village hall for the Feast and the Ceilidh are limited, so early and group booking is highly recommended.

Entry: £12 individual/£25 family ticket   U/10’s free with a ticketed adult

Bake Off – Finale

Competition

the best Pear Pie using the Haddenham Feast Recipe 

The winner will add a modern twist to this ancient Recipe 

Bring your Pear Pie to the Village Hall at 5pm on Saturday 21st September (check) for your chance to win a £25 voucher 

No one knows what pear pie was really like, but below is a very old recipe that was discovered in the museum. We know that pear pie featured in the Feast from very early times and is ‘uniquely Haddenham’ and so is worth re-inventing! 

Pastry Ingredients (shop bought pastry is allowed)

90g unsalted butter, softened 
65g caster sugar 
3 free-range egg yolks 
 200g plain flour, plus extra for dusting 
 10 strands of saffron 
 Filling: 
 Pears (ideally 4 medium sized wardens, otherwise 4 firm pears) 
 1/2 tsp cinnamon 
 1/4 tsp ground ginger
 500ml full-bodied red wine 
 100g granulated sugar 
 ¼ tsp ground cloves 

Peel and core the pears. Parboil them for 5 minutes. Allow to cool, before setting them into the pie shell.  In a medium pan combine the wine, spices and sugar and place on a high heat, stir continuously until the sugar is dissolved and bring to a boil, then simmer for two minutes or until a thick syrup develops. Pour the syrup over the pears and cover the pie with a pastry lid. 

Bake in a moderate oven, 80–190°C (350–375°F) for 45 minutes.
