Entertainment at the Fete in 2024

Singer Duncan Allen is a Swing, Rat Pack and Musical Theatre Vocalist who delivers performances with flawless vocals, sophistication and style.  Most recently Duncan Allen was seen singing on ITV’s The Voice UK and was mentored by Olly Murs.  Duncan was also honoured to perform in a touring production of ‘The Rat Pack’.  Duncan’s extensive repertoire includes classics from The Great American Songbook as sung by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and many Musical Theatre showtunes.

Mike Elvin is a very experienced entertainer who has honed his craft to become a wonderful performer.  Not only does he bring you a first class Punch and Judy Show he is  also skilled in allied arts such as balloon modelling and magic.  Punch and Judy is a traditional show that goes back over 300 years and has evolved over the years.  Originally it began with actors playing the characters to adults before it became puppets.  But now we know it as a children/family entertainment.  It brings fun and humour with its unique entertainment that will have children laughing and calling out in a very interactive way.
