The BBC will also bring their "Good Food Market," which will feature artisan food, drinks, and street food stalls.

At the event, three alfresco bars sit alongside the bandstand, where visitors can enjoy the dulcet tones of The Estrellas and jazz singer Chris Weeks, with BBC TV presenter Chris Bavin as compere.

Moreover, London's dry gin brand, Gordon's, will be sampling their latest Tropical Passionfruit Gin amidst the lively music.

A set of workshops suitable for children, such as flower-making, will also be run by the local National Association of Flower Arrangement Societies (NAFAS).
