FINMERE: Visitors to the second Finmere Festival can find their inner Highlander with a bagpipe competition this Saturday, September 1.

The unusual contest is part of a full day of entertainment and activities, including a beer festival, dog show, and live music.

A 5km fun run will offer medals and a trophy for men, women, boys and girls, and visitors can have a go at ‘zorbing’ – a sport involving rolling downhill in a see-through plastic sphere.

Other attractions will include an art show, craft and trade stands, and a sale of locally-produced food.

The festival starts at 1pm on the village recreation ground. Visit www.finmerefestival.org for more information.
