Ewell St Mary’s Morris Men return to dance up a storm, while roaming musicians brass quartet Brass Squad will pop up all over the place, playing everything from Jerusalem to Dad’s Army.

Winston Churchill and his wife Clementine will make an appearance to perform excerpts of his most famous speeches and take a tour of the market.

Visitors will even be able to try their hand at defending a castle gate against invasion. Test your longbow skills and compete against your colleagues to protect your domain from a marauding horde using the latest virtual reality technology and a bit of imagination.
