Organisers of Cranbrook Day – on June 25 – are expecting at least 2,000 people to attend this year’s festivities, marking the sixth anniversary of the cutting of the town’s first turf.

And they hope that the annual family event will blossom as the town expands.

Cranbrook Day 2017 is on Sunday, June 25, noon to 6pm, at the Cranbrook Education Campus. Around 60 local vendors and tradespeople will attend, offering food, drinks, crafts, entertainment, demos and activities.

Highlights include live music, a bouncy castle, barbecue, face painting, football and the Cranbrook Bake-Off, where attendees will have the chance to prove their cookery skills in front of a VIP panel of judges.

The event is being organised by the Cranbrook District Rotary Club, a non-profit organisation helping raise funds for the local community, as well as regional and international rotary charities.

Todd Plant, head of the events committee for the Rotary Club, hopes to create a memorable event for locals.

“Cranbrook Day is set to become a key addition to the town,” he said. “It will only get bigger as the town expands, and will soon rival local events such as Exmouth Festival.”

Entry is £1, with free admission for under fives.

If you wish to volunteer at the event, or want to book a stall, call Todd on 07923 018267, or email: hello@cranbrook-rotary-club.co.uk.
