A family-friendly community festival will return to Barford next weekend, which will raise funds for the local primary school.
The eighth Barford Festival will be held at the village hall on Saturday, July 13.
This year's theme is 'Bugs, Butterflies and Beasties' and there will be stilt-walking bugs, mystery nature trails, wishing trees, Banham Zoo's Bizarre Beasts Roadshow and a chance to make a costume to join in the Ugly Bug Ball.
Hocus Pocus Theatre will be performing in amongst the crowds, and you can try your hand at poi and hula-hooping. This is all happening alongside favourites like Doc Spinoff's Circus workshops, Human Demolition, Zorb-balls and climbing wall.
There will be a chance to perform, make and create in workshops including printing your own souvenir t-shirt and hopefully watch a butterfly release.
You may also want to watch:
Live music will be playing throughout with local bands such as Last Men Standing, Destination Mars, The Rumble, Kepler and Can't Surf.
Food will be provided by the Twist Up paella and tapas bar, Woodfired Proper Pizza and Captain America's barbecue.
