Hot on the heels of last year’s debut annual festival, local charity and care provider, The Fremantle Trust hosted FreFest 2016, ensuring a memorable day was enjoyed by all.
Held on Saturday 6th August at Aylesbury College, the festival was hosted in partnership with the local Santander bank and delivered a cracking line-up of entertainment for those who benefit from its services and their families as well as the Trust’s employees.
Officially opened by The Mayor of Aylesbury Cllr Barbara Russel, the event took place from 1-4pm and over 300 visitors were treated to live performances from popular solo vocalist Rob Oakley and ukulele quartet The Ukes of Hazzard.
Attendees were also invited to put forward tasty creations in the form of Olympic themed cakes, with Lina from Calverton chosen as the competition winner for her swimming pool cake.
There was also a chance to take part in the Fremantle Derby as well as a variety of a raffle and tombola stalls, with additional entertainment on hand from a local dance troop Spotlight Dance Squad and Sylar the Magician, who also entertained the crowds.
Commenting on the event Liz Harris from The Fremantle Trust, said: “We were thrilled to build on the success of last year’s event and bring the festival to the local calendar for the second year running. The event is a great way of bringing those who are supported by our services and colleagues together to enjoy a great day out with their families.
“The Trust is rooted in the community so we were proud to team up with our local Santander branch to enjoy a full programme of entertainment and a healthy dose of fun.”
