|Where:||Alport Castles, Derbyshire in a large barn up a track from Hayridge Farm on a minor road off the A 57 Snake Pass|
|When:||1st Sunday in July|
The Love Feast is an annual custom held each July on the first Sunday of the month, in a large barn on a farm in remote Derbyshire. Its a simple Methodist service with unaccompanied hymns, and water and fruitcake instead of the usual communion wine and wafers; there will be straw on the floor and few luxuries. It’s held to commemorate and perpetuate the nonconformist tradition in these parts.
Don’t expect some kind of orgy! The name may be a little misleading to some people…it’s not a love-in or a giant blind date.
In 2017 it will be on Sunday July 2nd.
