The annual Festival of Surrey Life returns to The Fox Revived pub in Norwood Hill near Horley next month.

The two-day celebration of the county's social life and local enterprise, including food and drink producers, performers and a wide range of activities, will take place on Sunday, May 25, and Bank Holiday Monday, May 26.

The brainchild of The Fox Revived publicans Jon and Paula Briscoe, entry to the event is free.

Now in its fourth year, the festival has attracted more than 1,000 people each day. Jon said: “This really is a collaborative event. It’s one big party where everyone can participate and join in for the entertainment of others.”

He said: “Each year we manage to bring together an eclectic group of producers, performers and activities – there really is something for everyone across the weekend. “ He continued: “Activities at the 2013 Festival of Surrey Life included street dancing, birds of prey, steam engines, paintballing, quad bikes, music, line dancing and many other stalls and attractions. “I expect 2014 to be bigger, better and a great celebration.”

He added: “It’s a simple concept, but, as is often the case, it’s the simple things that work the best, and this is some old fashioned fun for the family to enjoy.”

The festival will run from noon until 5.30pm on both days.
