For the first time, the festival will take place on the clubs pitch, with marquees hired in to accommodate any bad weather and live music will continue all day with a range of acts to suit all tastes.

Brewery partner Windsor & Eton Brewery will once again be brewing up a special festival beer which this year will be named ‘The Dudley’ in honour of club secretary Darrell ‘Dudley’ Freeland who is currently in hospital waiting on a heart transplant. All money raised from the sale of this ‘special’ will go to a charity of his choice.
