This year we are moving our main Annual Event forward to the beginning of August, and bringing in some new attractions, in addition to some old favourites, to provide a wide range of interests and activities for all age groups. Truly an event for all the family with some of the flavour of Country Fairs of days gone by.
Guild Members will be displaying and selling their hand made crafts,
with working craft displays, live music and other attractions, including Historical
Re-Enactment displays and activities. Hot food and refreshments.
