Village Mentality returns to the Village Green and this year the 2017 games will be themed around the idea of doubles. With Field Day officially in double figures, it feels only right to explore ideas of dual identity and parallel realities, identi(kittens) to dopplegangers – from the relative safety of the games field.
Revellers will be invited to grab a partner and step into the Alternate Reality that is the Village Green. Assimilate in the Tug of War or become a Human Double Decker, tie up for Twin Set 3 legged Racing, or back track in the Mirrored Relay Race. Expect symmetry, weirdness, high jinks, and twists on tradition (as ever) in a fete like no other. You'll lead, I'll folllow...You’ll lead and I’ll follow. Or I’ll lead and you’ll follow.
Together we’re stronger. Who said that?
Pass the blindfold…
Plus the unmissable eating contest at 3pm – that’s one institution that can be trusted, come what May. And there’s the Farnborough Concert Band of the British Legion and tea and cakes from The Dalston W.I.
