The four-day event runs from Friday to Monday, August 24 to 27, at the Henry Smith Playing Fields in Brookfields – with plenty of family fun on offer.

There will be a whole host of events over the bank holiday weekend, running each day from midday long into the night.

These are set to include a disco, big band night, scarecrow hunt, zorb balls, comedy night, donkey rides and much more.

Originally started as a new year millenium celebration back in 1999 and 2000, Party on Potton was so popular with the town’s residents that it now runs every two years.

All profits made from the event will go towards the next Big Weekend.
