Organisers wanted to host the event again this summer to enable members of the community to get together and have fun. 

Festival director, Courtney Davis, said: “We believe it is time to build on the successful community festivals of 2013, 2015 and 2017 and provide the community with a much-anticipated opportunity to connect with friends and family.”   

Local bands and acts will be taking over the main stage to entertain festival-goers with music ranging from pop and rock to folk songs.
