After torrential rain on the Friday, and gloomy weather for much of Saturday morning, the 2019 Beaulieu Village Fete became dry and hot from the opening time onwards. In keeping with this year’s theme of the musicals, the Fete was opened by Adrian Hall who played Jeremy in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and who arrived in Chitty with Lord Montagu. The Fete was generally regarded as a great success, building on its philosophy of being simply a Traditional English Village Fete. The setup crew on Friday morning braved heavy rain to erect gazebos, the coconut shy and marquees. Everything performed splendidly and very many folk went home tired but happy.
