Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Saint Hill Manor, UK - May 30, 2017 - Saint Hill was transformed into a Medieval fairgrounds May 28, for a charity fundraiser featuring activities for the entire family. More than 1,500 attended, raising £4,000 for East Grinstead’s Chequer Mead Community Arts Centre.
The perfect weather of the late May afternoon lent itself to the enjoyment. Activities included a Medieval joust (and jousting with hay-filled burlap bags on a wooden “horse” for the younger set).
There was also archery, falconry, a tug of war, and kids-only obstacle course inside the bouncy house castle.
Of course, a Medieval Fayre would not be complete without a sack race, pony rides and the stocks, where “offenders” were pelted with sodden sponges.
There was also a barbecue and a traditional hog roast to round out the afternoon.
The event raised more than £4,000 for Chequer Mead Community Arts Centre, a complex including a 340-seat theatre, dedicated art and exhibition gallery and restaurant/bar. Built and operated as a charity by East Grinstead Town Council, the Centre has earned a reputation as a first-class venue with a wide educational component.
Saint Hill Manor is the historic home of author and humanitarian L Ron Hubbard, founder of the Scientology religion. It served as the international headquarters for the religion in the 1960s.
