50th Anniversary

This day is a celebration and day of remembering 50 years of magic. It is a day to remember the people who gave us such wonderful days and memories.

Postponed - please see forum

We have now put in place what is going to happen at Hexwood on June 20th this year for our members.

Catweazle marquee

There will be the usual summer fete with a Catweazle marquee. In the marquee we hope to produce a display of things relating to Catweazle and the early 1970's as well as the usual merchandise. We will also have the bust of Catweazle there for people to see.

Hopefully we will be able to display his costume, Adamcos, thumb ring etc. We just have to find a way of protecting it all.

The barn

At about 5 o'clock the ticket holders will join us in the barn, where we have invited 5 real owls along in homage to Hoot Not. People will be able to see them up close and hold them for photos etc. They will be there between 6-8pm. Also we will have Madam Rosa's grand daughter Angela - only this one isn't a fake. We are planning a fun evening of dowsing and pendulum divination for people to take part in if they wish during the evening.

Magic & more!

We have also a member who is a professional magician who has kindly offered to do a magic display of some sort - either up close or a show. Details still need to be worked out because timing and space will be an issue.

We will also have a screen set up, so that we can celebrate the series in the barn whilst watching the episode of the barn!

Last but not least we have booked a pizza van at 8 for the people and also drink will be available.

NOW THE IMPORTANT BIT!

please read carefully

Ticket holders

Anyone can attend the summer fete during the afternoon, and will just pay the small admission fee to the farm owners.

However the evening in the barn is for ticket holders only.

There will be someone at the barn door to check your tickets.

Any person on my list that has donated to the event will receive a free ticket which will include free food and a drink, also of course join in the activities in there. Any person who hasn't donated in the past for the event will have to pay £10.50 each for a ticket (they will also be allowed to choose a pizza etc.)

The Barn

Now the barn will only hold so many people so we have a limit on ticket numbers. It could be 60 or it could be 100 - it depends on whether people don't mind standing or if the room is not sufficient to hold what we intend to do plus that many people.

So far 30 people have applied for a ticket from my last update, so if you wish to come along then please email me at carodaw56@gmail.com as soon as you can. I will then be able to give you details of payment if required and a choice of pizza toppings to chose from.

Limited tickets

We have tried to incorporate homages to the series and hope that people will enjoy the evening and fun.
It is not sure at this point whether we will have time to do the Flying Toad challenge or not at this stage, purely because of the short time we have. We also don't know what the weather will be like on the day (it has to be done outside) So that will be decided later.

Any questions please email me or ask on the forum.
Once all the tickets have gone - that's it I am afraid (for this year anyway.) So please don't delay.

The Flying Toad Challenge

Flying Toad Challenge

What is it?

The Flying Toad challenge is going to be a fun exercise for our members to take part in on the 50th anniversary day, whether they attend the 50th or not. We have 100 little plastic toads ready to be given a name and character profile. sponsored by our members and then launched into the challenge on the day.

The Flying Toad Challenge

The cost per toad is £2 and this will go back into prize money for the winner, runner up etc. There is also a trophy that you can add to your garden!

On the day

On the day, the sponsor will be required to compete with another sponsor, by launching your toad via a sling shot – not an ordinary sling shot – but a sling shot that requires you to sit down with the sling shot fired between your legs as in the water bomb sling shot! Not very elegant. But bound to be fun and entertaining!

The process

The toad that lands the furthest distance away, will be put into the next round with the loser set aside. This process will continue until we get down to the final two toads and we will find our eventual winner then.

Slingshot

To sponsor your toad, please fill in the form and submit, then make your payment and then your Toad's name and profile will be displayed on the site for all to see!
