WOOD­VALE Rally re­turns to Vic­to­ria Park in South­port this week­end (June 16-17) with at­trac­tions to en­ter­tain the fam­ily.

This year the rally has se­cured a wide range of live per­for­mances from groups well known through­out the North West, in­clud­ing John Len­non’s Quar­ry­men who will take to the stage on the Satur­day.

Crowd pullers Mike and the Sun­rock­ers will also open and close the mu­sic pro­gramme with their au­then­tic rock ‘n’ roll sounds.

This year the rally will also see the 12th cen­tury brought back to life when mem­bers of the re-en­act­ment so­ci­ety His­to­ria Nor­man­nis will set up camp at the show­ground.

Visi­tors will be in­vited to ex­pe­ri­ence the Nor­man era af­ter 1066, handling re­pro­duc­tion arte­facts and ex­plor­ing the liv­ing con­di­tions of a 12th cen­tury army on the march.

Show-go­ers will also be in­vited to join for­mer Marvel Comics writer and editor, Tim Quinn for a les­son in cre­at­ing comic book char­ac­ters.

Hav­ing worked on ti­tles in­clud­ing the Beano, Dandy, Spi­der-Man and X-Men, he will help visi­tors cre­ate a new su­per hero based on their life.

Peter Wood, gen­eral man­ager, said: “We are really ex­cited about the en­ter­tain­ment and at­trac­tions we have lined up for visi­tors this week­end.

“In par­tic­u­lar we are pleased with the mu­sic pro­gramme which in­cludes many well­known artists from the Cav­ern era.

“The rally con­tin­ues to of­fer a great value fun day out with some­thing to en­ter­tain all mem­bers of the fam­ily.”

The West Lan­cashire Dog Dis­play Team will once again be putting our four-legged friends through their paces in the main arena as will Jema Leopold with her amaz­ing per­form­ing horses.

A new area has been cre­ated this year An­i­mal Land, giv­ing visi­tors the chance to see and pet dif­fer­ent an­i­mals.

The rally also welcomes All­days Farm and Wood­lands An­i­mal Sanctuary as well as the North West Rep­tile Club.

There will also be en­ter­tain­ment for chil­dren, a fair­ground, theatre shows, bouncy cas­tles, big slides, quads, climb­ing wall, zorb­ing balls, go-karts, archery, caves, train rides and ra­dio­con­trolled model cars.

Clas­sic and vin­tage cars will be mo­tor­ing in as well as mil­i­tary ve­hi­cles, model rail­ways and boats and sta­tion­ary engines.

There will also be nu­mer­ous trade stands, craft and food mar­quee, car boot, col­lec­tors fair and Mor­ris danc­ing.
