The annual Harborough Summer Fayre is set to take place at Harborough Rugby Club on Sunday, August 14, between 11am and 7pm.

Among the attractions on offer will be a fly-past by the Red Arrows and a Spitfire and stands hosted by the Leicester Tigers and Leicester City – including their team mascots Welford and Filbert Fox.

There will also be entertainment on the main stage including music from the Harborough Band and Ann Marie Marlow, a show by dancers from the Starlight Dance Academy, a fun dog show, a children’s teddy bears picnic, a birds of prey display, a reptile zoo, fancy dress for children, a circus workshop and an acoustic tent.

More than 50 stalls and stands will also be selling goods.

A spokesman for the organisers said: “This year we are raising money for Rainbow’s hospice for children and young people as well as HFM, the local radio station.”

There is still an opportunity to book a stall or a slot on the fayre’s main stage.

Anyone interested is asked to contact Juliette Maher on or 07736 361351.
