The actual event will get underway on Saturday, August 28 with the arrival of a brass band from Wales who will be performing at the opening BBQ in The Firgrove Hotel.

Apart for food and other refreshments, there will also be a cookery demo with chef, Jane Clarke an animal show and lots more,” Sean Hyland said.
