Organiser Irfan Shabir came up with the idea for the event after the success of Movies in the Park with Maazi earlier in the year.

“It gets nearer and nearer and my excitement levels are building – I am really looking forward to it,” he admitted.

Irfan said that he has been approached by many organisations that want to take part in the day, such as the Youth Hostel Association (YHA), which will have a stand.

There will be selection of 40 stalls run by local traders for visitors to choose from, as well as a children’s fair and popcorn sale.

“It’s something that I’m passionate about and something that I feel will be good,” Irfan continued.

“It is going to appeal to a wide audience.”
