This year’s event will be opened by Bedford Pipe Band, followed by musical entertainment from Dewey School of Dance, Clickity Clack Parties, Cottenham Brass Band, Porterhouse Jazz 6 and Tom Sings Swing.

The event will start at 12 pm on Saturday, July 9, at the QEII Playing Field, Little Paxton.

Cllr Jean Matheson said: "‘Paxfest & Fun Dog Show is a wonderful community event with lots of stalls, barbeques, beer tent, refreshments, magic shows, donkey rides and petting farm.

"This year, there is a new attraction from Royston & District Model Engineering Society who will be bringing along their model steam engines and providing train rides.’

The Fun Dog Show starts at 1 pm with 16 dog show classes, including the best smiley dog and dog with the waggiest tail. Entrants can register on the day for £1.50 per dog class.

A special free shuttle bus service provided by TING Bus will be running between St. Neots and Little Paxton just for the event.
