The all-day event will feature ancient themed attractions including dowsing demonstrations , storytelling, folklore, an interactive time-line , stone moving , a mystical song bath, object handing and a finds exhibition.

There will also be astronomy, an excavation pit, face painting, a Rollright history display – and the latest news about the Saxon Lady.

The Trust’s actual anniversary isn’t until November 12 but the year-long celebrations got under way in July with the Rollright Stones Festival.

The Trust plans to schedule more events later in the year and into next but is also looking into other avenues to further enhance the Rollright Stones experience,including a fully developed Rollright Stones App which is currently available in pilot form.
