The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight plans a fly-over at the event on both Saturday with a Spitfire and Sunday with a Dakota. Times are yet to be announced.

VIP guest 'Winston Churchill' will be joining the event on Saturday and boosting morale with his famous speeches.

Brandyn Shaw will also be performing again on the Sunday. He is widely acclaimed as one of the country's most authentic vintage entertainers, having appeared on the BBC's Len Goodman's Dance Band Days, and numerous BBC radio programmes, re-enacting one of the greatest crooners of the period - Al Bowlly.
