The main stage features live singers, dance acts and cabaret from across the country whilst the DJ tent features the best local DJs. There is a variety of food and drink available and plenty to see and buy in the market stalls area. A selection of fairground rides and games are also provided by Billy Bates & Sons fun fair.
