The 2011 Spring Fair.
The 2011 Spring Fair.

RUGBY’S annual Spring Fair is moving venue and changing format due to the restructuring of the Ken Marriot Sports Centre at the Whitehall Recreation Ground.

This year’s popular event, which attracts thousands of visitors each year, will be called The Rugby Music Festival and it will take place at Caldecott Park in Rugby on Bank Holiday Monday next week (May 7).

The event, which is organised by the Rotary Club of Rugby Dunsmore and sponsored by Asda, has been moved to Caldecott Park from Whitehall Rec where building work is ongoing for the new leisure centre.

Gates open at 2pm and the entertainment will run from 4 till 8pm including the Rugby FM Road Show with Jason Moss and the final of Rugby’s Got Talent.

Last year’s competition winner, Holly Aires; Emily Burns; Michel Bouble tribute (Jordan Williams); and Rugby’s very own four-piece indie rock Band, Dukes Jetty will all be performing.

Admission is £2 for adults and £1 for children. Family tickets £5.

The usual fun fair and refreshment stalls will also be there.

Proceeds from the event will go to Rotary charities including the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.
