Music fans can enjoy live performances, children can have a go on the bouncy castle and other attractions, while those who feel guilty about relaxing can take part in a 5km fun run.

There will be arts and crafts galore: those in favour of high culture can enjoy poetry readings, while those who want to feed more than their souls can head for the barbecue and beer tent.

There will be children’s entertainment throughout the day, which runs from 12noon-6pm. There’s also a dog show for those who want to show off their canine companions, with registration at 10.30am and judging from 11am. It costs £1 per entry, with classes including best rescue dog, best pedigree and best child handler.

Proceeds from the dog show will be split between organisers Victoria Park Action Group, and the RSCPA Blood Bank. The fun run takes place at 12noon after registration at 11.30am. It costs £5 for adults and £3 for under-16s. Meet at the corner of Nutgrove Avenue and Hill Avenue, but register first by emailing
