Entertainments are held thrice weekly. Whilst not compulsory to go to them all, most do and only being ill is considered a good enough excuse to skip attendance. The entertainments usually involve singing, dancing, acting, recitals, and sports like football, cricket, rounders, anything team related as that gets as many of the village involved as possible. The entertainments are usually great fun and very noisy. And from the government’s point of view, they’re useful - the villages are not causing trouble for them.
Villages group together (in groups of five) annually for their summer carnival where al species takes part. These are arranged throughout the season so the Queen and/or Eileen can attend them. A lot of drinking takes place and that’s just by the organizing committees! There are floats, on the theme of fairy tales and nursery rhymes, but you can get the Kingdom’s equivalent of an “avant garde” float based on the theme of how horrible humanity is, which always goes well. There’s nothing like condemning an alien life form to bring magical beings together in a spirit of unity.
Fairy tales and nursery rhymes must be re-enacted regularly in the magical world to keep the stories “alive”. Once the carnivals are over for the year, there’s a lot of competitiveness to see which group of villages got the best coverage on FNN and which royal seemed to enjoy which festival most. The debates from this keep FNN and the press going for material for months. This material ranges from nice to poisonous. The disappointment of those who didn’t get on the organizing committees or felt their carnival didn’t get enough attention can be physically felt by all magical beings for over twenty miles!
