Saturday 16 June / Village Green Bandstand

Village Green Bandstand

11:00 — 19:45

Choirs, brass and steel bands and perhaps a little dancing?

Relax in the atmosphere of our brand new Village Green and be entertained by the wonderful talents of our local community on the Village Green Bandstand.

With food and drink nearby in The Farmers’ Market and at the Craft Beer Bar, you can picnic on the Green and take in performances by local choirs and bands and, if you fancy it, even join in a dance workshop!

There also tons of crafts, community and charity stalls and activities if you fancy a browse and a shop!
