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.
