The immensely popular South Cerney Street Fair and Grand Duck Race takes place once again on bank holiday Monday

The free event, from 10am until 5pm, on Monday, May 27, will feature more than 100 craft stalls, live music, dance performances and children's entertainment.

One of the day's biggest highlights will be the famous Grand Duck Race at 3.30pm.

For visitors wanting quieter activities, the Village Hall Art Exhibition and All Hallows Church will be open all day.

Refreshments are available throughout the day from a variety of food and drink stalls or indulge in a cream tea in the vicarage garden.

Starting out as a small church fete over 30 years ago, the South Cerney festival weekend has grown enormously in recent years.

The Street Fair now rounds off a whole weekend of music, dancing and community events, helping to raise thousands of pounds for the church and local organisations, charities and youth groups.

The festival weekend is run by a large army of volunteers and is a fabulous example of what can be achieved when the local community comes together.

Free parking for visitors will be available at the South Cerney Airfield, access from Northmoor Lane (follow signs), with free vintage buses running from the airfield to the street fair site and return.
