Burtle Harvest Home 2016

Date Title Venue Organiser

Burtle Village Harvest Home is held every 4 years since its resurrection in 2000.  The last Harvest Home was 2012 and, like the Olympics, is scheduled to be held again in the Summer of 2016.  Plans are already well in hand and 2016 looks set to be the biggest and best ever.

Make a note in your diaries now for this major village celebration, 6th August 2016.


Tickets will go on sale in the Spring.

Lunch - Tickets £20.00 per adult, priority will be given to village residents but non-residents may put their names down for any spare tickets

Evening - Tickets £5.00/adult (£7.50 on the day), children under 18 £3.00.


We have been unable to find any CRB checked child minders willing to run a crèche this year.  The hall will be open from 12-3.30 and toys/play equipment available courtesy of Burtle Babies, however, parents must make their own arrangements to ensure that either a parent, relative or other responsible adult is in attendance to supervise their own child.  The Harvest Home Committee will not be responsible for any child left at the hall unsupervised and shall not be liable in any way for any accident or injury that may occur.

Live entertainment in the evening

This year's live entertainment will be provided by SNAPPA.  This local band is very popular in the area with a strong following.  Having engaged this group for past events in the village we just know you will love them.

We have also engaged Gary Seymour who will also entertain us as an Elvis tribute act and Karaoke, so get your singing voices in tune and give it a shot.

Disco - Bar - Pig Roast

The event will be held at the field adjoining the Burtle Village Hall and on the .  Please note the marquee and hall will be non-smoking.  Car parking is provided in the field the other side of the hall.

There is a lot of work to be done both before the event and on the day, if you can help at all please contact a member of the committee.  We are also looking for sponsors to help defray the cost, please visit the Sponsorship page for more details or contact Steve Allen.

Gary Seymour Elvis Tribute and Karaoke 

This is what Elvis Presley looked like, unfortunately our tribute act, Gary Seymour, looks nothing like him but sounds pretty similar, so just close your eyes and imagine.  In between his renditions of classic Elvis tracks he will also be encouraging members of the audience to come up and do better with his Karaoke equipment.
