MUSIC, entertainment and fun for all the family are promised when Malvern mayor Julian Roskams holds his Mayor's bonanza, next Sunday, August 17.

Priory Park is the venue, and organisers are praying that the warm weather will continue to make the event a smashing success.

Residents and visitors alike are urged to bring along their picnic hampers, chairs and blankets for an afternoon of fun, starting at noon.

Admission is completely free, but everyone is being urged to give generously during the day, as all money donated, plus the proceeds from activities and stalls, will go directly to Councillor Roskams’ chosen charities, which this year are Age UK and Dementia UK.

Several acts will provide music throughout the afternoon, including singer-songwriter Will Killeen, folk-rockers Red Shoes, and the championship-winning Forest of Dean Brass Band, who will be closing the day with a not-to-be-missed prom finale.

The ever-popular Dance in Motion will also be there strutting their stuff, and the vocal talents of the Rock Choir will also entertain.

As if that is not enough, there will also be an original Victorian fairground ride, bouncy castle, circus skills, drumming, and kite-making workshops, plus face-painting, balloon modelling and a great selection of food, drink, and much more besides.
