Peppard Revels

The original Peppard Revels are reputed to have been rather bawdy and drunken events that took place on the Common in the eighteenth century. They were revived in modern form at the end of 1999 with a dinner for 420 people in a large tent on the Common. This was accompanied by a torchlight procession, band, fireworks and the lighting of a beacon. The next day there were activities for families and on the Sunday a service representing all the local churches. The event was planned by a committee of local people under the chairmanship of Sir David MoneyCoutts. Further Revels were held in 2002 to celebrate the Queen’s Golden Jubilee and in 2005 to mark the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. These followed a similar pattern with the tent decorated in a dramatic and appropriate fashion. In 2008 we celebrate the centenary of Ian Fleming’s birth (author of the James Bond novels).
