What’s happening on Friday afternoon this year?

Electra says: Fancy an afternoon of flashy fun on the lawn? I’ve got great news. 2023 will see the first Flashy Fringe Fete of the Bath Flash Festival, running, skipping and jumping throughout the Friday afternoon.
With games, stalls, activities, lashings of fun the Flashy Fringe Fete combines the best of an English country fete with everyone’s favourite flash writing opportunities.
As well as a flash lucky dip, flash pass the parcel, a team flash treasure hunt, pin the tail on the donkey, bunting, and other excitements there’ll be the chance to meet old friends and make new ones before the evening events and the rest of the weekend kicks off.
Many of the activities will have prizes and goodies to take away, and there will also be a Fringe Fete Flash Prize too
I’ll be approaching some people to run activities, stalls, and events direct, but don’t be shy about coming forwards. I’m dying to hear from you and how you’d like to volunteer to make this the flash of inspiration and fete we deserve!
Electra will have a dedicated festival email soon. In the meantime contact us to forward onwards.
Both Gluten Free.
Available Friday afternoon. 5.00 pm.

If you want a chicken or vegan paella, please can you let me know and you can pay for them with a card at the festival bookshopLuciano brought samples for us and our Spanish tasters late last year, and they said there were a really, really good paellas, both the chicken and the vegan ones.
