1 The incredible street food traders from Street Eats will be there. From Dogtown frankfurters topped with six-hour beef and bone-marrow chilli to gravadlax the proper way from Fine & Scandi to Mexican fish tacos, Venezuelan arepas and good old-fashioned tea and cake.

2 As well as foodie names you will recognise, there are some you shouldn’t miss. The best of the best will be in the Producer’s Village, from Canadian-influenced brownies and bundt cake to outstanding precision knives.

3 Want to know how to make perfectly shiny macarons or the secret of light and silky pasta? Abinger Cookery School will be in the demonstration tent.

4 Dotty will be serving up homemade cakes, clotted cream and jam scones served with tea and freshly ground coffee. Their artisan-style dairy ice cream is made using the freshest milk and double cream straight from the cows on St Joan’s Farm, just down the road in Leigh.

5 Jaques of London, the oldest games company and sports manufacturer in the world, will be showcasing croquet on the two public croquet lawns. Author Lewis Carroll, writer of Alice in Wonderland and a relative of the Jaques family, was an avid player.

6 The hugely popular, family tractor-trailer rides will be run by Priory Farm, and there will be rides throughout Priory Park.

7 The Silent Pool Gin Bar will keep revellers refreshed with the perfect G&Ts from the Silent Pool Distillers.

8 Explore Priory Park while you’re there. Bring a picnic blanket to enjoy the vista, food, drink and music.
