Fundraising manager Paul Roberts said; “The Bacon Buttie Festival is as much fun for us as it is for the good people of March. “It takes hard work and a load of organising but, when you see everyone enjoying good food and having fun at the same time, it’s worth all the effort.”

This year’s festival will feature a new initiative called ‘Ten Sofas – Ten Minutes’ a project designed to stimulate conversation and networking in Cambridgeshire to empower local people to build a better society for the future.

The festival is on Saturday July 13 from 9-1.
