As well as the foodie fun and entertainment the festival will host five themed “villages” – featuring health, funfair, food, entertainment and craft which will be spread out across the centre. 

The health village will have a select of stalls that will be offering free health checks as well as advice. The Gym Group will also be hosting a free gym workshop on the main stage and as well as this City in the Community will also be running a football activity. Specsavers will also have a stall offering free hearing tests. 

Free donkey rides as well as free face painting will be available. And there will be live entertainment from some great local performers throughout the day including Mercedes Jo TDS Dance Group, Company Chameleon, Urbanised Dance Academy, SAFE Ambition Youth Project and Wright Robinson College’s Steel Band and choir.
