Artists performing on the acoustic stage include Maz Manzini, Amir Sharma, Ant Barnes, Let there Be Light, Jack Kozera and Harry Quinn. Children can watch Punch and Judy and Shambolic Sideshow showcase their circus skills, put their creative talents to work on a giant interactive art wall, take part in a bandana workshop and get their face painted. Kitch Me Kwik will once again have their traditional teashop in operation and retro clothes on display alongside Ruby Moon’s stand. It starts at 12pm.
