The two-day fun spectacle on Sunday and Monday is once again set to be held in Play Close and is free to attend both days.

Organisers the Wood brothers said: “We cannot hold our excitement in for this year’s show. After the hugely popular release of the The Force Awakens film we have organised for a selection of Star Wars characters, UK Garrison, to appear at this year’s event.

“Some of the other attractions on offer include a horse riding skill extraviganza from Stallions of Substance, a stunt motorbike display, magic show from illusionist Andrew Van Burren, music from Melton Mowbray Toy Soldiers Band, the Vender Wheel of Death, fun fair, dog show and much more.”
