Horndon-on-the-Hill remains one of the most charming and historically intriguing villages in this area. The church of St. Peter & St. Paul is the parish church for Horndon on the Hill and is part of the Parish of Horndon, Orsett and Bulphan.  It’s position at the highest point in the village makes it a prominent local landmark. The Feast and Fayre traditional event dates back to the 13th Century when the village was granted a Royal Charter to hold a feast and celebration on the last weekend in June. The Feast and Fayre was revived in 1974 when a descendant of the original squire of the area was asked to preside over a pleasantly warm weekend and about a dozen runners attempted the first ever Horndon 10k.

When the Feast and Fayre was revived, the church was open during the weekend with a themed Flower Festival, this tradition continues and is always beautiful to see.
Food and drink is still at the centre of the celebrations at the church so come in for a cuppa with a slice or two of cake while listening to musical interludes. You’ll be made very welcome!
Horndon Feast & Fayre is part of Britain’s heritage and we are committed to keeping that tradition alive. Every year the Feast and Fayre has a different theme. The theme for 2023 is Merry England. Visitors are encouraged to join in the fun and wear fancy dress. The entertainment is chosen to be in keeping with the theme where possible.
