The nights are drawing in and the weather is getting worse - but there’s plenty to celebrate as the autumn approaches.

The Harvest Stomp festival, which is taking place near the Timber Lodge tomorrow, offers a variety of free seasonal activities.

Little ones can play traditional fairground games and meet animals at a petting zoo, while visitors of all ages can enjoy music and morris dancing performances.

There will also be jams and chutneys available to sample and those feeling more peckish can visit artisanal food stalls selling freshly baked bread, stonebaked pizzas and pulled pork.

The festival, which will run between 12pm and 6pm, features a variety of workshops, offering the chance to make smoothies, learn new cooking skills and make seasonal crafts.
