Granborough’s Charter Fayre committee is looking for local bands and soloists to showcase their talents in a Battle Of The Bands on the day.

The Charter Fayre takes place on Saturday, July 12. The idea is to have bands playing from about 3pm to 8pm, with the committee acting as judges.

Already in the line-up are popular Winslow band The Cantells and internationally renowned country singer and songwriter Colin Mackay,

The Granborough Charter Fayre, which originally grew out of the village celebrations for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee in 2003, usually raises about £1,000 for charity.

The all-day event starts with a children’s treasure hunt, followed by a parade down the hill at about 1pm, ending up in The Crown car- park and gardens.

There are stalls, events and games including garden games, a tug-of-war and a tractor pull, a disco and live music on the stage all day, through to about 11pm .

The Crown, owned by villager Toby Marchant, provides an outside bar and barbecue.

A free bus picks up from North Marston and Winslow and takes people home again.

Performers wishing to take part in the Battle Of The Bands should contact Graham Jenner on 07874 442415 or email
