for May 2018

Box Has Got Talent!

We're delighted to announce the return of Box Has Got Talent on Saturday 26th May from 7-11 pm at the Queen's Head. Box is home to incredible musicians, comedians, dancers and eccentrics who we're delighted to call friends. So if you have a talent, however weird or wonderful, then sign up to the Box Has Got Talent event on our Facebook page and come and entertain an incredibly supportive Revels audience. And if you're the shy and retiring type then please come along and support the acts, and enjoy other games which we'll host during the evening.

Admission is free (donations welcomed!), and Dean Creighton will kindly donate 10% of the Queen’s Head bar takings to Box Revels. Our local hero Kylemusic, winner of Box Has Got Talent 2012, will present the coveted Golden Microphone awards to our winners in the following categories i) talent; ii) originality; iii) entertainment value, as judged by the Box Revels Panel of local experts (which is rumoured to include a Simon Cowell Wannabee!). Winners will also be invited to perform their routine on the main stage of the Box Revels village fete on Bank Holiday Monday.

'Best of Box' Revels Parade / Box Revels fete

After last year's cancellation due to the weather, we're keen to re-invigorate the Box Revels parade and showcase the best of Box. We're encouraging our clubs and societies to don their club-colours, or raise their club banner and join the parade, which officially declares the Box Revels village fete 'open'. Like the annual Remembrance Parade, the Box Revels Parade starts from the green on Bargates – please gather from 11.30 am on Bank Holiday Monday 28th May. The Parade will be led by tractors and antique vehicles and will walk through the village and on to Box Rec, where an afternoon of fun and entertainment awaits. The event will include all the usual favourites – the Dog Show, Market stalls, Dave Hickory Magic Show, Sock Wrestling, Wife Carrying, Tug of War, Bouncy Stuff, Super Bowl competition, live music by local artists, and much, much more.

Support some great local causes

Every penny raised is invested back into Box. In recent years we've provided donations to organisations including the Jubilee Centre, The Green Room, Box Bowls Club and the Explorer Scouts, to fund much-needed equipment and excursions.

The best way to keep updated on all these events and the latest Revels news is to follow our Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/BoxRevels/.

We're always looking for help and support – particularly with morning set-up and end-of-day clear-up, so if you have a few hours you can contact us via Facebook or via boxrevels@gmail.com – we’d love to hear from you.

We very much hope to see you at this year's Revels. Let's make it one to remember!

Best wishes

The Box Revels Team
