FAMILIES are being promised a 'varied' and 'exciting' programme of events at this summer's Stockton Heath Festival.

Events manager Andrew Renshaw has been working tirelessly with committee volunteers to organise the line-up for the village showcase, which will run from June 30 to July 3.

The main festival site will be the Diamond Jubilee Field, on Parkgate Road, where arts and craft activities, as well as a farmers market, will be held.

A fashion show will take place, while a selection of musicians are set to display their talents for those in attendance.

Budding artists and amateur photographers can also enter an exhibition or competition staged throughout the festival.

Festival director David Craggs is urging the community to get involved and believes it will be an event to remember.

Tickets will be available on the website or box office in the Forge shopping centre from June 3.
