Organiser Alan Cozens said: “We’re hoping to repeat the amazing success we have had over recent years. It’s always such a fabulous day, with a combination of great food and brilliant music.

 “It’s a magical event with families picnicking on the grass in the afternoon and then hundreds of people dancing on the grass as the sun goes down.

 “Since Covid we’ve sold out every year and I expect the remaining tickets will be snapped up very quickly.”
