Preparations are well under way for Dalwood Music Day, which takes place on Saturday, July 1.

Taking place at various venues in the village, the popular annual event will offer something for different musical tastes.

Among the acts booked to play at the event are the Axe Valley Community Choir, Dave Martin’s Jabbo Five, offering traditional jazz, young musicians from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School and Trichord, which will offer modern and romantic renditions of well-known popular songs.

Also featured at the event will be: the Breton and French-inspired dance music band, Poisson Rouge; Waterloo Sunset, which features acoustic folk/rock musicians; the Craig Milverton Legacy Band; and The Old Peculiars, who are billed as Dalwood’s best boy band.

The music will be performed from noon, with the four venues - St Peter’s Church, the Tuckers Arms, the village hall and the Marquee at ‘Yetene’ - all offering something throughout the afternoon and into the evening.

Other acts to feature at the event will be Double Diamond, Woodbury Wind, the Renaissance Chorus, the Corrydale Singers from Dalwood and the village’s girl band, The Kroft Originals.

If jazz is your thing, the Tuckers Arms will be hosting the Pete Canter Jazz Quartet, Black Coffee, the Maggie Reeday Quartet and the Gatsby Gang.

There will also be An Evening of Gershwin Music and Song at the village hall, at 8pm

It will feature Laura Collins on vocals, Julian Marc Stringle on clarinet and The Craig Milverton Trio.

A spokesman for the event, which runs from noon to 10pm, said: “We look forward to welcoming you to our lovely village and hope you enjoy the wonderful music.

“It will feature many talented musicians and singers and we’ll endeavour to arrange good weather for your visit!”

An Afternoon Stroller ticket costs £8.50, with children 16 and under getting in for free and it will allow admission to the four venues from noon to 7pm
