It starts at 2pm at the village hall and playing field in Westhall, and hot drinks and seasonal refreshments will be available all afternoon.

Festival organiser Kim Hoare said: "We're really looking forward to a fun Autumn festival - this is a real community event, supported by our Community Council and all the local groups and growers.

"We're expecting to beat the 100 entries we had for last year's Produce Show, so we've made more space available for exhibits and will be open from midday for entries."
