Live music, delicious food and a range of fun and games will be enjoyed at a charity event this weekend.

Party In The Barn will be held at Elms Farm, off the A370 in Hewish, on Saturday at 7pm.

Bands Snappa and The Redhillbillies will take to the stage, before vintage DJ Dr Love Vinyl Revival plays classic tunes late into the night.

Guests will enjoy a licensed bar, hog roast and fish and chips, while a mechanical bull will offer everyone the chance to make a fool of themselves after enjoying a few beverages in the evening sunshine.

The event, which has raised thousands for good causes in the past, will make cash donations to the Ian Ritchie Foundation, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Hewish and Puxton Village Hall.

Tickets, priced £15, are available from
