things are getting serious

the innocent village fete

Both the innocent band and the innocent drum club had their final rehearsals for our village fete last night, in a recording studio, deep in the heart of Shepherd's Bush.

There was some serious concentration going on.


Some serious faces.


And some serious drumming.




Both bands will be performing on The Village Disco stage at 3:30pm on both Saturday and Sunday.

Please come along and cheer them on.

colin, berti, tug boat and oysters

the innocent village fete


Please say hello to Colin (foreground), his cousin Berti (background) and their fine Scottish oysters*. Colin is our innocent representative up in Scotland. You might have seen him on our blog before presenting a retailer of the month award and riding a space hopper. Along with working for innocent Colin also does a nice little sideline in fresh oysters straight from his farm on Loch Creran, which he will be selling at our fete this weekend in the food market bit.

Colin and Berti call themselves the oyster boys, click back there to find out lots more about their oysters and peruse some photos of these strapping young Scottish chaps doing their stuff.

*Colin's brother 'Tug Boat', who often helps out with the oysters, isn't pictured here. Tug Boat is called Tug Boat "because he is a very powerful man and he builds tug boats and 'extreme support vessels' for a living. He also loves being in the sea. When sailing he gets excited and his voice is fog-horn like. These combined attributes resulted in him being termed the tug boat". So now you know.

Like ferret racing, smoothie tasting, knitting and tea drinking, come and say hello to innocent area, face painting, petting zoo, funfair rides, kids assault course, a flea circus, a big farmers' market , real ale, cider and other bars, and much more.

Thought we'd show you some more of the people who will be playing at the fete. First, Christian Prommer's Drumlesson, who plough the furrow where jazz meets classic house.

They do a mean drum solo too.

And here's Son of Dave doing his one man thing.
