There is more to see and do with a fun fair, sporting competitions, a farmers’ market, food stands and ample liquid refreshment.

Gates open at 12 noon and the arena events finish at 5.00pm. But the fun doesn’t end there. For those with the energy to dance into the night, The RLC’s Party in the Park, live music event, starts at 6.00pm. There are food stalls, a beer tent and camping is available.
