Event attendees are being reminded to keep two-metres apart at all times and follow the guidelines in place by event organisers.

At Saturday’s event, some outdoor seating is available although people are also welcome to bring their own.

An organiser said: “All instruments and vocals along with all ages and abilities are welcome - If you can pluck it, strum it, sing it, blow it or hit it come and give it a try!

“Alternatively, just come and enjoy a great social afternoon. A hog roast is also on hand along with bar facilities etc.”

Sunday’s event will be a ‘Three of a Kind’ concert supported by Dave Benning and presented by PCRfm DJ Kristy Read.
