Bishopsteignton Village Festival

by Yvonne Hellin-Hobbs | Events, Festivals and Carnivals

Events, people and places involved in the Bishopsteignton Village Festival over the years.

Over the years The Bishopsteignton Village Festival has grown in reputation, size and stature. Many of the same people are still involved in the organisation and implementation of the festival and it still provides a huge draw for the residents of all ages.

The village has given tremendous support to, not only the bi-annual festival on the village green, but also the events held throughout the year to raise funds.

Bishopsteignton is home to a tremendous amount of talent and no shortage of silliness and surprises.

In the run up to the 2019 Village Festival, this video charts the progress and the growing popularity of the modern day festival, which started in 2013, though the festival itself began long before that.

What a lucky village to have so many clever organisers and volunteers, and so many eager participants; long may the fun continue.
