The marquees have been raised in the Wellhead Park and the stage is set for the opening of the festival with an evening of live music starting tonight at 7.15pm.
The event promises to be bigger and better than ever, running for four days from today through to Monday and will be the centre of the town’s jubilee celebrations.
Bourne Round Table, which organises the event, is hoping crowds of thousands will once again flock to the festival to enjoy the host of daytime and evening entertainment on offer.
Press officer Richard Ludlow said: “It is going to be lots of fun with lots of chances for people to join in have a good time.
“We are hoping for some good weather but with the marquees people will be able to enjoy the music even if it does rain.”
Richard said: “The festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary and this year will be extra special because it coincides with the Queen’s diamond jubilee.”
During the day sports clubs and groups will be hosting activities for people to join in with, including tai chi, Zumba sessions, a hockey competition and a tug of war contest.
