A giant summer party is being held in Keysoe over the Bank Holiday weekend, with special guest Pam Rhodes, from TV’s Songs of Praise.

The Celebrate 100 festival event is organised by the Church of England Diocese of St Albans and is free for all visitors.

The College Equestrian Centre, in Keysoe, will come alive to the sights and sounds of churches gathering for the Summer Festival of Fun and Praise for all ages, on Bank Holiday Monday, August 25 from 10am.

This event has been organised by the Church of England to celebrate 100 years of the St Albans Diocese.

On an outdoor stage Pam Rhodes will introduce musicians and speakers and there will be a service of worship led by the Bishop of St Albans, the Rt Rev Dr Alan Gregory Clayton Smith.

Throughout the day there will be many free displays and attractions for all the family.

Classic cars from across the past 100 years will be on show - including the history of MG, free fairground rides for children, dodgems and bouncy castles.

There will be displays with animals, including Britain’s leading dog display team, the English School of Falconry and much more.

A spokesman said: “It’s not often that the Church of England holds a giant summer party but that is exactly what will happen this year. Entrance and parking is free for what will be a party to remember.”
