So, make your way to Rendlesham. If you park in Rockford’s car park, you can get a free ride to the show in one of Tony Buckland’s historic buses! But, however you arrive, you’ll want to make sure you arrive in good time so you don’t miss any of the packed programme of events which opens with the Band of the Royal British Legion at 11:00 a.m. and concludes with The Lockerbillies’ great music from 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. The refreshments include a BBQ and Bar; all our caterers are excellent and provide for all tastes + there’s plenty of seating so you can plan to come for the day. We look forward to welcoming you all!
To help plan your day, an e version of the programme with all the details of events, attractions, parking etc will be on the Parish website by 1st June www.rendleshampc.org.uk
