Saturday’s event will feature a Latin flavour as this year’s theme is Rio and all things carnival, with fun for all the family to enjoy throughout the day.

A display of classic and vintage vehicles is taking place at the Royal Hotel car park from 11am on Saturday, with some of the vehicles also taking part in the parade.

There will also be stalls on the old school field on Swallow House Lane from 11am.
