There will be a mix of old and new at Sum­mer­fest 2015 which takes place on Satur­day (June 20).

Rev­ellers will be able to en­joy the fa­mil­iar sounds of Chris­tian as well as Ste­vie Grassie and Scott Wal­lace.

But sev­eral acts will make their de­buts at the award- win­ning com­mu­nity event in what is al­ways the big­gest day of the year in Cam­bus­lang.

Singers Sharon Nimmo and Pauline Grant are set to take to the stage for the first time, as will jive danc­ing group MG Dance.

The ac­tion gets un­der­way at 10am with Bushido Karate, Quick­sil­ver Line dancers, Sharon Nimmo and the Jef­fery McFad­den Ir­ish Dancers.

At 12.10pm, the of­fi­cial open­ing will take place be­fore the com­mu­nity awards are dished out.

The new Cam­bus­lang Pipe Band will per­form at 12.30pm be­fore Pauline Grant gets on stage at 12.50pm. Then, the main man him­self, Chris­tian will be there to en­ter­tain the crowds at 1.50pm.

Ste­vie Grassie and Scott Wal­lace will bring their cabaret show to the stage at 3pm while MG Dance are on stage at 4pm ahead of the clos­ing time at 4.30pm.

It prom­ises to be a great day, but Sum­mer­fest or­gan­iser John Edgar, ad­mits they had to make changes this year.

He said: “We’ve tried to change it a bit, and ob­vi­ously we’ve had our fund­ing cut and that means we’ve had to cut our cloth.

“We were also let down for the climb­ing wall, which is dis­ap­point­ing.

“But as ever, we’re hop­ing for good weather and a good turnout.”

While the main stage will be the fo­cal point of the day, there will be stalls all the way along the Main Street for peo­ple to browse.

Free face­paint­ing and bouncy castle will be there for the kids, who will also be handed out free fruit and toys.
