Mickey & Minnie to Open 2016 Maypole Fete

Plaistow PreSchool Maypole Fete

Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse are due to open this year’s Plaistow Maypole Fete on Bank Holiday Monday 2nd May, from 12pm – 4pm.

The traditional village fete on Plaistow village green (RH14 0PX), will include entertainment for all the family including a bouncy slide, fairground rides, pony rides, face painting and more. Plus, refreshments including a BBQ, beer tent, Pimms and Prosecco and cream teas.

This year, to celebrate Plaistow Pre-School’s 50th anniversary, the Pre-School children will be dressed as characters from the 1960’s for their dance around the Maypole at 12pm.

We also have an exciting new addition to the Maypole Fete – our very own ‘Best in Show’ competitions! Are you a budding Bake Off contestant? Dab hand at flower arranging? Is there a Lego star in the family or a green fingered little one? Then come along and see if you have what it takes to be a village champion!
