ROYSTON town council have confirmed the running order of events for this year’s May Fayre.

The annual event, which takes place on Priory Gardens on Monday May 2 between 12pm and 5pm, will include a performance from the Above and Beyond trapeze act, a novelty dog show, live music, children’s entertainment, refreshments and much more.

A hog roast, hot dogs, beer tent, bouncy castle, slides, miniature train rides and charity stalls will all be on offer throughout the day.

The novelty dog show returns after proving very popular last year, and included nine classes for dogs to enter.

Most handsome dog, prettiest bitch, waggiest tail, best rescue, child carer, best veteran, best condition, dog the judge would most like to take home and best in show will all be contested, all costing £1 each to enter.
