There will be live music fromlocal bands and artists, including Thom Kirkpatrick, George Wilson, Matt Coles, Jake Henry, Callum McCissock, Taylor-Louise and Andy Bennett from Ocean Colour Scene. The event is on from 1pm to 11pm; there will be entertainment for all the family including inflatables, games, tombola, gin & Pimm’s tent and a barbecue.

Tickets are £10 for adults or £5 for under 18s.
