Master of Ceremonies for 2015 is Mike Sewell from BBC Five Live, back by popular demand after he did such a great job in 2014. There will also be special guests to help us to celebrate the fifty years since the competition was established.
You can expect the pub itself to be lively all day and there is live music later with GONE TO THE DOGS (these guys really are sensational), so stay a bit later and spend a kick-ass afternoon and evening in the company of new landlords Tom and Tracy who will welcome you to the Shuckburgh Arms.
The Guide Dog Demonstration Team will be attending the 2015 championships.
Peterborough Morris Men will show some traditional dancing.
The 'Samba Bandits' will provide plenty of lively music that's guaranteed to raise the spirits.
Back by popular demand, acoustic accompaniment from Five String Thing with Sync 'n' Tap. There will be traditional pub games and a very welcome return by The Balls Up Jugglers who will be staging workshops from 11.15 until 14.15.
Craft stalls and goodies around the green and in the Village Hall. Teas and cakes are also available in the village hall. A diverse selection of tempting foods are on offer along side an excellent choice of fine ales from the Shuckburgh Arms.
