Things are getting groovy on Green Lane as the swinging sixties will return to a south of Butser community centre this weekend.

The Clanfield Centre will hold its annual summer festival this Saturday with this year’s event having a 1960s theme.

More than 2,000 people attended last year event but organisers insist this weekend’s shindig will be even bigger and better.

Spectacular live music, food, traditional games and a special raffle in aid of local charities are promised at the dog-friendly event.

Visitors can expect live music from The Wednesdays, WonderBoy, Electraverse and The DLB among others.

Festivalgoers will be challenged to a tug-of-war while kids will be well catered for with a bouncy castle, face painting and games.

Dog competitions, numerous stalls, an indoors market and beer garden can also be expected from 11am to 5pm.

Prizes will be handed out to the best dressed while proceeds from the raffle will go to Sophie’s Legacy and centre operators, Community First.

“Our summer festival is a much-anticipated event and we’re excited for it to return,” said Natasha Glover, centre manager.

“It’s also a great opportunity to thank our wonderful staff, volunteers, members and the people who support us and raise money to keep our centre at the heart of the community and to support other good causes.”

Walking is encouraged but a shuttle bus will run every 30 minutes to the centre from Peel Park, South Lane Meadow, Hawthorn Road and First Avenue for a suggested £1 donation.
