    Live Entertainment

    This year we have a stage which is being sponsored by Balgores Property Group and a donation from an Ongar Resident. This gives us the opportunity to showcase all the local musical, theatrical & dance talent. There will be performances from: Dance Expression Studio, Straight Up Dance, Leanne Singer for all Occasions; Academy Arts; the Ongar Singers; Chris Talbot Swing Set and bands Remark & Scraping the Barrel.

    Sporting Activities

    The Ongar Sports Club are also delighted that the local professional boxer William Webber will be returning to the festival again this year. Not only will you get a chance to chat with him at his stall, but there will be an opportunity for you to see him in action in his practice boxing ring. We’ll be arranging a rounders competition where teams can compete for a prize. Ongar Squash Club will be offering a chance to try out Squash and challenge our resident coach to ‘BEAT THE COACH’. Also we’ll have football darts which will challenge your inner striker and skills but in a fun way…….
