Food and drink will be available to purchase including hog roast, cocktails and prosecco from The Tipsy Grey Ltd, ice creams from Molly Moos Ices and Afternoon Teas from Lavender Blue Vintage Teas, among others.  

There will be live music from rock’n’roll band Kingsmen, performances from LJ’s Jive School where you can watch or join in with modern jive dancing and singing from the fabulous Harmonettes.
