There will be live music all day showcasing performances by home grown talent from around Tameside. You can try out lots of musical instruments and take part in a Samba Drumming workshop, led by professional musicians. If you are all about books, there will be lots for you to do from settling in to a reading corner, getting crafty or picking up some fab reads to take home.  Refreshments will be available for everyone and there are food heating and baby changing facilities available for the littlest members of your family.

I hope as many people as possible will come along to join in the fun.”
