The day will feature shows, pipers, clowns, jugglers, a children’s magician, Dr Fudge, DJ Fudge, a disco, football, a skate park show, mad scientists, a jazz band, face painters and ponies.

Community council chairman Robert Hogg said: “The gala will be a fun-packed day, with entertainment for everyone.”
