We are so excited to have the Dixie Belles joining us once again. They will round off the day with one hour of their 1940s and 50s three part-harmonies”.
If you would like to get involved with the Day or to hold a Stall, please contact Annie on anniekinghome@gmail.com for more details. The Day opens at 10.30am and ends around 4pm.
