Corporate hospitality at Tottenham Hotspur and a signed One Direction book are among auction lots on offer at the 55th annual Brookmans Park Village Day.

The theme for this year’s event, which takes place today (Saturday), is ‘World Carnival’ which draws on the 2014 World Cup and its host Brazil, well known for its spectacular carnivals.

And that is not the only football link.

Spurs and England defender Gary Mabbutt is a village resident and regular visitor to the festivities.

The Village Day will open with a World Carnival-themed fancy dress parade, led by Gary Mabbutt, which will leave the village green at 12.45pm, heading to the school for 1pm.

Headteacher Nathan Hairon said: “The children having been learning about some of the World Cup countries this term so the theme of this year’s Village Day fits in very well with this.

“They are busy getting their carnival costumes ready for the fancy dress parade and I’m sure it will be a fun day out for them, their parents and the local community.”

As well as familiar favourites, this year’s highlights will include a bungee run, tug-of-war and a limbo dancing competition.

There will be a wide range of refreshments, including a barbecue, crepes, Indian food, licensed bar, fairground attractions, live music and pony rides.

* Full details of the day, including the auction and raffle prize list, can be found in the Village Day section of the PTA website at www.brookmansparkpta.com/village-day
