At the carnival ground there will be a funfair, inflatable slide, magician, face painting and a car boot sale. Refreshments are provided by the YM in the beer tent, while food will be available at stalls from Sainsburys, Baxters and the New Delhi Restaurant.

While live entertainment includes performances from the Honey Badgers, Humble Scribes, She and Still Whisky as well as displays from Got2Dance. Entry is £3 for over 12s and 50p for kids.
