Warwick, who recently appeared in Dr Who, will be joined by local MP Shailesh Vara to launch this free event made possible by a Lottery grant.

It’s all being held on Middletons Road Recreation Ground, in Yaxley and it’s hoped it’ll become an annual event.

There’s a great line up of entertainment planned including a Live Music Zone featuring Groove Cartel, Vendetta, Sons of Kal-El, The 925s, From the Sticks plus, the amazing Abbalarf and  talented Simon Lee.

There’s a History Zone with two historical exhibitions, a Sports Zone will include everything from virtual golf to penalty shoot-outs, and the Animal Zone
