Thanks to everyone who helped to make this such a successful event yet again.

Huge thanks to Ade, Claire and all at Golden Valley Meat and Game for so generously donating the bacon and sausages again this year. Also; Jan Williams for donating eggs, Angel Inn and Angel Kitchen for their help and support and everyone who helped on the day.

We hope that you all enjoyed your breakfast and had time for a chat/catch up.

We served over 100 breakfasts and the event has made a profit of approximately £420 which will be used to fund future events in the village.

Next year will be the 20th year that the Mayday Breakfast has been happening in Grosmont. If you have any thoughts on how we could celebrate this then please let us know.

Thanks again everyone for your support.




Party-goers enjoyed teapot cocktails and electro-swing music at Grosmont Events Bootleggers Ball on 23rd March. The evening included a surprise staged police raid. Local gangsters armed with machine guns, fled the scene of a heist, scattering their ill-gotten gains as the cops closed in!

Everyone really got into the swing by dressing in the best roaring 20’s style and who knew that Grosmont had so much rhythm! The prize for best dancer was won by Karen Farr who totally got the spirit of the Charleston.

Thank you to all those who helped with organising the event, decorating the nave, providing the fantastic canape buffet, music, mixing and serving cocktails and generally having a jolly good time.
