  • Hot Potatoes stall wIth a variety of fillings.
  • Ford Hall Farm with their organic burgers.
  • Delicious Snugbury's Ice cream.

Also this year we have live music from Moonlight Serenade delivering a flavour of Glen Miller swing to the event.

Free programmes will be available on the day and following your suggestions this year there will be a few seats to rest any weary legs and take in the atmosphere.
