A FESTIVAL is coming to Crawley later this month, and is expected to bring up to 500 visitors with it.

The first annual CrawleyFest will be held at Crawley Cricket pitch on August 30, and includes a giant inflatable obstacle course, arts and crafts workshops, dance and strongman competitions and gladiator jousting.

The family event will also see stallholders selling their wares, and live music from 7pm until 11pm.

It costs £5 a ticket, and children are free. Profits go to the cricket club.

The event kicks off at 2pm. For more information go to crawleyfest.com or email crawleyfest@gmail.com.
