Thirty real ales and ciders will be on offer, with a hog roast on Sunday and Monday afternoons.

The live music on the Saturday will be provided by local band Great, while Sunday is 'buskers day', where anybody who plays acoustic can turn up. Ska Face will perform hits from Bad Manners to Madness during the evening along with a host of the band's own favourites from the early '80s.

Monday sees a buskers lunchtime session, with Tania Alboni performing a tribute to top UK singer Amy Winehouse from 4pm. Organiser Chris Burnard said: “This event will hopefully grow from year to year.”
