This year the Rotary Club is teaming up with new organisers – “Magic of Thailand” to stage its popular festival and is hoping it will be better than ever.

For two days the racecourse will host Buddhist monks, sword fighters, dancers and musicians, and there will be stalls selling Thai food, drinks, spices, crafts, and massages.

Buddhist Monks will start the festival off with their ceremonies, and the traditional reception of gifts from the traders.

On stage throughout the day will be a presentation of Thai culture, with dancing, sword fighting, music, local boxers Muang Thai and cookery demonstrations.
