Festival chairman Tony Shipp said: 'In 2012 the festival achieved enormous successes. Over 20,000 people enjoyed the festival weekend, thousands followed the deckchair trail and hundreds of children entered the design competition – it is hoped this year's festival, with an expanded programme of free events, will achieve the same success and bring more and more people to this fabulous area.'
Tickets for the opening night show cost £5 and are available from the Pavilion Theatre box office on 01263 512495.
