MUSIC ranging from Haydn to Simon & Garfunkel and The Beatles will be performed at the Seventh Fleetville Festival this Sunday, March 17.

Fleetville Community Band, which was formed in 2007 by late local resident Paul Olive, is hosting the festival at Fleetville Junior School.

It will feature performances by Fleetville Infants School and Fleetville Harmony Singers as well as jive swing dancing backed by live music performed by the Fleetville Swing Band and crafts for children.

Tea, home-baked cakes and biscuits will be available as well as a display about Fleetville community history.

When he formed the band Paul, who died in January 2011, felt that community bonds could be strengthened by making music together.

He established the Fleetville Festival in order to bring together players and singers of all ages and abilities from the local area to perform once a year.

Entry is by voluntary contribution of £2 per person or £5 per family of four and further information can be obtained from
