Staff from Henry Adams, whose chosen charity this year is the Aldingbourne Trust, will be running a children’s musical instrument-making stall.

“This will be the third year of AldingBOOM and we’re excited about getting involved by joining the crew for the first time this year,” said Gail Chisham of Henry Adams.

“Staff from the successful local estate agency will be running a children’s musical instrument making stall, with all proceeds going to the charity.

“Hopefully the rain will stay away for a little longer so everyone can really enjoy all that the festival has to offer.”

Tickets are £4 for under 16s, £6 for adults and £18 for a family of four, with free entry for under twos.
