The popular We Love Tamworth event will take over the picturesque town centre park on Saturday 22 August with wall-to-wall entertainment and activities for the whole family.

Presented by Tamworth Borough Council's Arts & Events team, the extravaganza is expected to attract around 10,000 visitors following last year's successful event which has become one of the main highlights of the town's calendar.

We Love Tamworth runs from 11am to 4pm, with a variety of activities and entertainment taking place throughout the day.

The Castle Grounds will be alive with fairground rides, a dog show, land train, Tamworth 's strongest man competition, a police and fire service assault course, stalls and much more.

There will also be a dedicated Children's Zone featuring walkabout characters, a mini zoo, inflatables, obstacle course, junior Gladiators, face painting, balloon modelling, and craft activities. Entry to the Children's Zone will be £3 per child, with adults getting in free of charge.
