Photographs of the Benson Festival 2006

In olden times, Benson ran a very successful annual Festival. Sadly, the event disappeared from the Calendar in the early 50s and, in an attempt to revive the tradition, the Village ran a modern style Festival in 2006. Successful as the Festival was, the organisers decided not to continue the event in future years due primarily to the lack of volunteers to assist in organising and the bureaucracy generated by modern Health and Safety and many other rules and regulations.
