The 2018 Kilburn Feast aimed to maintain the long-standing tradition of bringing the village closer together and to ensure all have fun  whilst raising money for these local charities.

The Friends of Kilburn Feast thank villagers and many members of the Thirsk Rotary who freely give their time and support and the Feast’s sponsors (below) for their generosity.

The 2018 Kilburn Feast

The 2018 Kilburn Feast was very successful raising nearly £6,000 for local charities and bringing much joy to young and old alike.  This success would not have been possible without a lot of hard work by the Friends of Kilburn Feast, other villagers and Thirsk Rotary and the generous support of many sponsors.

Friday Evening:  The Charity Quiz was a sell-out and was enjoyed by all.  The winning team won £250 for Herriot Hospice Homecare, with runners up winning £100 for Leonard Cheshire’s Alne Hall and £50 for the Kilburn Institute.

Saturday Evening: The Mouse Derby was well attended.

Sunday Afternoon: The Road Race attracted 244 runners, despite the fiercely hot weather. Hundreds and hundreds of people, including many families, enjoyed circus clowns, Punch & Judy, games, duck races, a bouncy castle, live music, a Grand Raffle and many stalls overflowing the village square.  Late afternoon, there was a well-attended open-air church service.  

Early evening, dozens of villagers and visitors watched the famous duck race and Lord Mayor’s parade - a tradition dating back many years.  There was a twist this year in which we celebrated a hundred years since the vote was first given to women, we had a feisty female Lord Mayor.  The Feast made donations to; Thirsk Rotary, Yorkshire Air Ambulance, St. Mary’s P.C.C. and the Kilburn Institute (to assist in its urgent restoration).
