Hampton Festival

In September 2017 the Hamptons celebrated its 20th birthday with the inaugural Hampton Festival. The festival involved events like The Great Hampton Bake Off, a bring-your-own banquet, a giant LED screen showing images submitted by residents from their time living in the Hamptons, and a procession led by the theatre companies Eastern Angles and Lamphouse Theatre who performed their show ‘Hampton Folk Tales’.

The procession was led by Mavis the Hampton Giant from her home at The Tump to Silver Hill by Serpentine Green. There were also some on-stage performances throughout the day with a choir of school children singing the Song for Hamptons, plus performances by the Hampton Dance School and Raijin Storm, a Japanese drumming group.

The Giant and the Rose

In preparation for the Hampton Festival, Peterborough Presents, Eastern Angles and Lamphouse Theatre went to local schools to get folk tale ideas from all the students. 'The Giant and the Rose' is a story that was thought up to explain the origins of the famous Hampton Tump.

The tale goes into the story of a giant named Mavis and a girl named Rose who became friends and brought new life to a previously dusty, barren land.

You can read the story yourself in the Hampton Folk Tales book, written by Becky Owen-Fisher, a member of Lamhouse Theatre, in collaboration with Eastern Angles and Peterborough Presents.

Song for Hampton

Living together, in a wonderful world
All the fields and the birds
Sitting on the hillside, watching the horizon
See the waters glisten in the sun

It’s Hampton, It’s Hampton today
It’s Hampton, It’s Hampton today

Living together, in growing green spaces
Sharing good times with friendly faces
Watch the birds go by, past the wonderful day
All the places filled with friendship

It’s Hampton, It’s Hampton today
It’s Hampton, It’s Hampton today

Living together, in a wonderful world
All the fields and the birds
Sitting on the hillside, watching the horizon
See the waters glisten in the sun

It’s Hampton, It’s Hampton today
It’s Hampton, It’s Hampton today

Hampton Folk Tales and Song for Hampton were written as part of a collaboration between Lamphouse Theatre, Eastern Angles, Becky Owen-Fisher and Kerry Devine.
