Youngsters visiting the show will find plenty to see and do with great attractions such as the Old Tyme Fair rides including: The Steam Gallopers, Speedway Ark, Cake Walk, Supercar Racers and Sea on Land.
For the smaller children there will be The Happy Donkey Company providing rides. Glewy the Alien will be putting on a show over the weekend provided by the small muppetry company White Feathers Entertainment. Glewy is a friendly little monster, similar to Elmo, but not as well behaved. With his friends Jeff the Monster, Ella and Sally the Bunnies, Bingo the Dog, and Echo the Pig, they try to recreate a Sesame Street style show. Especially for children who missed out on such a wonderful childhood experience.

THE VINTAGE VOCALIST - PAULA MARIE
A real treat for 1940s music fans, Paula Marie is ‘The Vintage Vocalist’. A unique solo vocal act bringing the music of the 40s to life! She possesses a rich and beautifully expressive voice that really does hark back to this bygone era! Her wartime performances feature a wonderful selection of music from the time including all the traditional wartime favourites and sing-along classics. She’s sure to get you all singing along, so why not join her on a sentimental journeyback to the golden age of song!

PUT YOU GLAD RAGS ON - COME DRESSED UP FOR THE SHOW
This year visiting the show we have a group of people dressed in 40s period costume. Why not dress up and try it for yourself to add to the atmosphere. No need to dress up as RAF or Army officers; simple civilian attire will do absolutely fine.

Anyone who likes there Motown and Soul music will love CJ Jackson. Performing on Saturday in the beer tent, the “Man of Soul” has been performing since the age of 16 with live bands, eventually forming his own called ‘Exposure’ leading to supporting acts like Toyah Wilcox and The Specials in the 80s.
