Organisers are confident that this year's MyRaynesPark Festival will be a record setting occasion.

The annual arts festival has gone from strength to strength every year since it started in 2010 and this year 21 events have been lined up to entertain.

Tom Underwood, Chairman of MyRaynesPark said: "Last year we reached our widest ever audience with over 1,000 people attending.

"Thirty local groups are partnering with us and there is a schools programme which will reach many more."

Some names you might remember are the Jigsaw Players and comedian Andy Kind while newcomers to the festival include author Tim Finch, poet Zena Edwards and comedian Dana Alexander.

Beginning on June 29, the event will run for ten days and finish on July 8 with a day in the Holland Gardens.
