Village entertainments range from song singing to epic ballad telling and demand stamina (if only to sit through interminable hours to work out which elf can come out with the longest ballad and then to count how many of the audience stayed awake until the end). But they are popular and are always packed out. The summer nights out include a kind of Sports Day in most villages and towns. The sprites always eagerly contest these but seldom do well unless they cheat and, if caught cheating, they get the whole wrath of the crowd down on their heads.
There was a village called Sansway
Where juggling was top of the day
For the annual summer fete
Followed by best looking bait
To distract any beasts tempted to stay.
