MUSIC will blaze out and beer will flow when a Fenland leisure centre hosts its biggest event to date later this summer.

The Manor Leisure Centre, in Whittlesey, will stage live music and a mini beer festival on August 31.

Fairground rides will be installed and various workshops and activities will be put on for children.

The event is one of more than 20 bookings for the centre over the next few months, including wedding parties, dinner dances, a sportsman’s dinner, meetings and birthday parties.

The centre has undergone a major renovation, including a £140,000 investment in the kitchen and the sports hall to provide a special function room.

The room includes an indoor marquee that can seat up to 220 people.

Councillor Pop Jolley, Fenland District Council’s portfolio holder responsible for leisure, said: “A central part of any community is an affordable venue to hold local events.
