There will be a funfair, inflatables, a military vehicle and stationary engine display and live music from The Twice Dailies, the Barley Rye Choir, Nailsea Musicals and Robin Schaefer.

Families will also be able to tuck into barbecued food, homemade cakes and refreshments and browse the stalls in the car boot sale.
