But besides the music there is also a host of family activities, with a kids’ zone with drum and hula hoop workshops and juggling sessions, and free face painting. Providing some of the refreshments will be the Tipi Beer Tent, Scoff and Sip’s ice cream van.

The event has raised some £50,000 for local charities over the years. It sells out each year but there are some tickets left, costing £16, £11 for four to 15-year-olds and £1.50 for threes and under. There is a small booking fee. To book, visit musiconthegreen.co.uk
