There will be loads of activities for families to enjoy when the Tiffield Midsummer Festival gets under way this weekend.

The festival takes place on both Saturday and Sunday (June 20 & 21) and will be raising funds for three charities.

Those to benefit from the proceeds will be the Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA), Cancer Research UK and the British Heart Foundation.

Among the attractions at the festival will be pony rides, a World War One exhibition, ferret racing and walking football.

Teams will be testing their strength and agility with a Tug-o-War competition and a ‘greasy pole’.

There will also be a wide range of stalls too, with a variety of goods on sale at a special crafts courtyard.

Refreshments will be available, with The George pub supplying a beer tent - selling Great Oakley ales - and there will be food stalls on site too.

Live music adds to the entertainment, including a gig by The Retrobaits on Sunday.

The festival takes place from 1pm-11pm on Saturday and from 11am-10pm on Sunday, with the fun based around Claydon Fields in Tiffield.
