As well as live music by Jamie, the Man in Black and Rick Legend plus another live duo there will be numerous stalls including wooden items, original paintings, new jewellery, crafts, cards and more.

Additional news – there will be a troupe of dancing Filipino Ladies performing at around 11am to 11.30am.

George Ferhatoglu, owner of the Cafe George commented: “I am delighted to be holding another Tulips’ event at my Cafe.  The one we held in March was great fun and raised a good amount for the charity, which is what it is all about so I hope all my regulars will come along and support us.”

The Abnormals will also be there with their own brand of comedy and Pam Kennedy will be on hand to give advice on Tulips.

Mary Watson, Chairperson of EFRAR 2017 commented: “We hope we will get lots of holiday-makers stopping by to buy from the stalls, listen to the music and enjoy the food and drink at the Cafe. It would be fantastic if we could surpass the amount we raised in March but whatever we raise, it will help the work the Association does for so many people. It promises to be a very enjoyable way to spend a Sunday and to help Tulips.”

The 2017 EFRAR will take place on Sunday, 9th April and more details will be announced in the coming months.
