A wonderful family day out, and especially fun for children, this Festival has existed in it's present form for over 100 years, but its origins stretch back to the 1800s.
It involves a large parade through the village with floats, bands, dancers, singers and the local children in costumes, along with the new Rose Queen and her Attendants.
On the field behind The Village Hall the entertainment continues, with children's rides, games and more displays.
There is also a wide-range of food and drink to suit all tastes.
There is an hourly rail service on Saturday from early until late.
