The first flower and produce show of the year, the Midsummer Flower and Garden Show, will be held this week on 27th and 28th June. The biggest event of Sark’s musical calendar is almost upon us with two days of fun, great local food and music this weekend, 29th June to 1st July, at the Sark Folk Festival. Tickets for the event sold out months ago for what promises to be a great weekend with musicians from the other Channel Islands, France, the UK and Australia as well as Sark’s very own Big Sheep. The book ‘Art for the Love of Sark’, featuring the work of the award-winning wildlife artists who worked in Sark last year on the project of the same name, will be launched on 6th July at Stocks Hotel. David Bellamy OBE will be attending the launch that opens at 3pm with a presentation at 6.30pm.
