From 6pm the festival reopens for a special folk night and barbecue with award-winning Welsh three-piece ALAW headlining.

Nick Boaz from Team HanFest said: “The atmosphere in the village is building, the handmade signs are up and the hay bales and stage are due to arrive!

“It’s great to see the village coming together and inviting everyone to join us for a naturally fun time while helping to raise funds Maggie’s Oxford.”

HanFest is a non-profit event organised by villagers twice a year, one in the summer and one around Christmas.
