Mentmore Arts Festival 2020 @ St Mary's Church Mentmore

The 12th Mentmore Arts Festival will be held from Saturday 23rd to Monday 25th May 2020 from 11.00 am to 5.00 pm.

We are delighted that our favourite artists continue to support the event and are also very happy to make new artists a welcome addition to the team. We now showcase the work of over 60 contributors, twice the number from our opening year. This, together with record numbers of visitors, has meant that we have been able to donate to charity the fantastic sum of over £84,000 in total from eleven events.

This year we are supporting Leukaemia UK, WheelPower and St Mary’s Church Mentmore.

The weekend is an opportunity to have a family day out with our refreshment tent offering light lunches, teas, coffee and a fantastic bar selling Pimms and local beer. We also have a raffle with some great prizes.

Sky Dive for Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity @ Hinton Airfield
Jul 11 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Sky Dive for Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity @ Hinton Airfield

For those seeking an adrenaline-charged challenge or just looking for a new experience but also who want to help others by raising money for the Hospice, why not consider taking on a skydive or tandem parachute jump for Florence Nightingale Hospice?

Imagine standing at the edge of an open doorway in an aircraft flying at 10,000 feet – the noise of the engines and the wind ringing in your ears with only the outline of distant fields below. Now imagine leaning forward out of that doorway and letting go – falling forward into the clouds, diving down through the air as you start freefalling at over 120mph!

Then imagine the peace and quiet as the canopy opens, the steering toggles come down either side of you and you begin a tranquil parachute descent from a mile up in the air, steering yourself back down to the centre of the drop zone below.

Imagine being able to do this for FREE whilst harnessed to a professional freefall parachute instructor and at the same time being able to support Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity! Stop imagining, it’s real and it’s happening all the time and you can be part of it…

The Skydives take place at Hinton Airfield near Brackley in Oxfordshire.
