Back by popular demand are the Cockney Pride Pearly King and Queen and their band from London, while children can enjoy free (or subsidised) rides and amusements, free puppet shows and face painting, and there are numerous stalls for everyone to visit. A Second World War flypast is scheduled for 2.45pm, weather permitting, and there will be a vintage vehicle display, among many other attractions.
