The event will be spread across two sessions, with the first running from 12pm to 5pm, and the second from 6pm until 11pm.

What will there be to eat?

Meat lovers will be able to indulge in a huge variety of tasty sausages sourced from the finest butchers - a standard above those found in local supermarkets, according to the organisers.

Foodies can expect to find some unusual flavours to try, with the likes of currywurst, cranberry, stilton and sage, and smoky maple and chilli among the selection.

As well as sausages, attendees will have the chance to sample a range of ciders from all corners of the UK, alongside a selection of craft beer and gins.

There will also be live music to keep festival-goers entertained as they tuck in.
