A massive event calendar is planned for Kewstoke village this June in anticipation of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Over the course of four days between June 2 to 5, the village will see parties, fancy dress, dog walks and sports days, all to celebrate the longest reigning British monarch. 

An enormous marquee will be constructed on the playing field beside Kewstoke Village Hall on the bank holiday to host the community events. No dogs or glass items will be allowed on the field during the festivities.

Organisers say there's 'something for everyone' with baking competitions, arts and crafts stalls, a scarecrow trail, picnic and live music events.

Below is a full list of all the events taking place.

Thursday, June 2

A village scarecrow trail will run for the full four days with the theme of 'royals through the years'.
