The unique event of all things beading - run by Spoilt Rotten Beads - will take place on the village green with special guest jewellery maker Jem Hawkes.

Dozens are expected to visit from across the UK as workshops, exhibitions and demonstrations will be on offer.

The theme for this year will be gods and goddesses - with participants in with a chance of winning a £50 voucher.

Juliet Browse, director at Spoilt Rotten Beads, said: “It is a really great event which is free for all.

“There will be lots of jewellery making classes and the chance to meet like-minded people and have a laugh.

“We’ll have people from all over the country coming to exhibit and Jem Hawkes who appears on jewellery making channels will also be on hand.”

The event will run this Saturday (June 16) from 9am to 5pm.
