Hundreds gathered at the Millennium Jubilee Field for last year’s event, which featured live music, inflatable slides, family activities such as mini golf and archery, a photo society exhibition and sports club demonstrations.

For 2018, the Great Kesgrave Bake Off will also run, putting the cake-making talents of locals to the test on the theme of a celebration cake.

A barbecue and other hot food will also be available for the event, which runs from 11am-4pm.

Further details and programme of activities will be unveiled closer to the event.
