Meanwhile, for youngsters, there will be a fun fair and a whole host of children’s activities. They will include a sandpit, garden games, balloon modelling, face painting and animal encounters.
A dedicated teenage area will have DJs, gaming tournaments, virtual reality, glitter artists and a chill out area, while there will also be football and other sporting activities.
