Live entertainment in the evening

This year's live entertainment will be provided by Six Machine.  This local band is very popular in the area with a strong following.  Having seen them in action we know you will love them.

After the success of last event we have again engaged Gary Seymour who will bring his Karaoke, so get your singing voices in tune and give it a shot.

The event will be held at the field adjoining the Burtle Village Hall.  Please note the marquee and hall will be non-smoking.  Car parking is available in the field the other side of the hall.

There is a lot of work to be done both before the event and on the day, if you can help at all please contact a member of the committee.  We are also looking for sponsors to help defray the cost, please visit the Sponsorship page for more details or contact Steve Allen.
