Camels can be found in the garden of the Bishop of Salisbury’s home on Sunday June 2.
Lady Chichester’s two humped Bactrian camels are the star attraction at the Bishop’s Summer Fête in aid of the Sudan Medical Link.
Visitors can have their photo taken in a luxurious vintage Bentley or a ‘Roaring 20s’ Austin 7. The Navy Larks band entertain as the 20 stout-hearted men, united by their love of sea shanties, entertainment with a lot of fun, sharing the stage with The Amesbury Town Band. It’s a rare chance to see the riverside garden not open to the public, and to enjoy a strawberries and cream tea, with a whole host of traditional stalls and games, from the human fruit machine to plant and cake stalls, and guess the weight of a sheep or two.
Last year, the fête raised more than £12,000 to support healthcare in Sudan and South Sudan, two of the world’s poorest countries.
The fête is at South Canonry, Cathedral Close, Salisbury from 1pm to 5 pm, and cost is £2 at the gate.
