We have music outside including local favourites Something Sultry with the headlining act Soul'd Out starting their gig around 9:30 pm - don't miss them!
As usual we have the acoustic stage indoors running from 2 until 9, and this year we are finishing up inside in the warm with popular folk rock band Big Sky in the Huntsman's restaurant as they take us through to midnight.
In addition there's a bouncy castle and other entertainment for the kids.
Come and join us once again for a whole day of music of all types in our annual ShireFest. Bring your own foldable chairs and come early to grab your favourite spot. `This year we are covering the car park so it doesn't matter about the weather and you won't all freeze in the evening - but remember that in early June it can get chilly at night.`
As always the event raises money for charity - this year once more we are supporting Noah's Ark Children's Hospital and in addition Diabetes UK. Remember that as everyone gives their time for free and with generous sponsors helping to pay for the sound equipment and stage you can be sure that every penny of your ticket price goes to good causes.
And at only £10 per adult it's fantastic value for money for a memorable day out, as many previous attendees have said.
As usual, we'll be running a minibus to take people home - make sure you book a place as soon as you get here as it's first come, first served. So get a mate to drop you off early, grab a ride back and enyoy the day!
