A FAMILY day which was rained off last year is expecting to see fun in the sun today (Sunday).
The 54th Stevenage Day will take place on King George V Playing Fields, with a two-month postponement of last year’s event due to heavy rainfall now a distant memory.
The fun day starts at midday with almost 200 stalls to browse, as well as free face painting, playground rides and performances from music and dance acts.
Headlining the annual event on the Sound Stage is girl rock band JOANovARC, who will be taking to the stage at 3.30pm, and male indie band All Against Nothing, who follow at 4.15pm.
Other performers include Roxy Searle and Raided By Waves, while the Show Arena features dancing from Sameerh Belly Dancing, Suki and Zorro Dance Academy.
