Following on from two hugely successful events last year, Ashfield District Council, with partners Discover Ashfield and Lincoln Green Brewery, will stage the latest edition on Hucknall High Street on August 21 from 10am to 4pm.

The first festival was held in August last year and was an instant hit, with many stall holders selling out by the afternoon thanks to the large numbers of visitors.
