BRIDLINGTON’S season of summer fayres and galas is in full swing, despite some rain and cloudy skies.

But forget about the weather, and for a great day out get yourself along to Flamborough Gala, held on the Woodcock Memorial Playing Fields on Lighthouse Road, this weekend.

On Sunday, August 14, the gala gets underway at 11am and will include arena displays - among them the Keeley School of Dance, Magic Mal the Magician, a Birds of Prey Display, Karate displays and children’s games.

Of course, also at the gala will be the Flamborough’s spectacular traditional Sword Dancing team.

A regular feature of the gala are the local live musicians who take to the stage to entertain gala-goers into the evening.

This year, local bands Blaming Eddie, The Recoils and Andy S will be making an appearance in the spotlight.

As ever, the gala is a family event with a host of varied attractions to keep the whole family entertained.

Activities include a fun dog show, stalls and sideshows, a bowling alley, ferret racing and a bucking bully.

But that isn’t all, as a bungee run, a junior football tournament, archery flower and gardening stalls, bouncy castles, hook a duck, swing boats, roundabouts, pet portraits, an RNLI stall and much more will also be on offer.

For those in need of refreshments, there is a beer tent and a barbecue with hot roast sandwiches, while tea and cakes and cold drinks for the kids will also be available.

The gala is run and organised by the Flamborough Sports Club Charitable Trust, which includes members and parents of the club’s cricket, tennis, junior and senior football teams at the Woodcock Memorial Playing Field.

Parking, and admission to the site, is free.

All proceeds from the event go towards the Flamborough Sports Club Trust.
