KNIGHTS, castles and all things medieval will be invading Stevenage.
On July 5, the Stevenage Town Centre Management team are organising a summer extravaganza.
The Comet's charity of the year, Building Blocks, will benefit from the proceeds and the charity is looking for volunteers to support the event and help it raise funds to benefit children, teens and babies at the Lister Hospital.
Head of fundraising, Daniel Fletcher, said: "We've been really delighted to work with the Stevenage Town Centre Management and are grateful for the events they have already organised this year that help Building Blocks.
"It's a great opportunity to be involved in Stevenage Summer Knights in July. We will need volunteers to help run a tombola, hand out balloons, hold collecting buckets, oversee some of the fun activities and generally assist the fundraising team.
"We are also interested in hearing from anyone who has prizes to donate for the tombola and other competitions."

Building Blocks is encouraging people to recycle them to raise extra funds for children and babies cared for by the Lister.

Suzanne Roynon said: "This is an excellent way for people to raise money at no cost to themselves."
