Organiser Carol Stacey says, ‘there will be a regular smorgasbord of fantastic country music at all the various venues. In addition we are offering street entertainment of a very high standard. We particularly hope that everyone enjoys the market stalls included in this year’s festival; this innovation is a direct result of community feedback.
