10th Birthday Party
Fun at the Fair
After months of preparation the big day had finally arrived- Compton Verney turns 10!
It was an early start for the Programming Team as they ran around the grounds setting up the stalls – from setting the ducks afloat to assembling a mini Compton Verney for the Hoop-La.
The staff then gathered in the Adam Hall to officially start the festivities with the cutting of the cake (very important – we do like our cake here at Compton Verney!).
We were absolutely over-the-moon to welcome so many visitors to Compton Verney to celebrate the special day with us – our busiest day in all of our ten years! We even managed to spot a few famous artists among our party-goers:
See if you recognise some of these familiar faces from the Programming Team too:
And the fairground fun didn’t stop there! Roll up, roll up – we had stalls, activities, rides, BBQ, music and more…
The soundtrack to the day was provided by a fab mix of musical and dance performances from In2Cultures, Startled Ferrets, Rock Choir and marvellous Nigel. Our thanks again to them!
And, it goes without saying, the day would not have been complete without Moira having a well-deserved go on the astro-slide after all of her hard work in preparing for the day… (note the Banksy jumper)
So for all those who joined in with our birthday fun, thanks so much for coming, and for those who couldn’t make it, we hope you have enjoyed reliving it with us through these photos. Happy Birthday Compton Verney, and here’s to the next 10 years!
