The group, who are one of the most well-known tributes to the Fab Four, will recreate the look and sound of John, Paul, George and Ringo at the annual festival on Gravesend Promenade.

They will be joined by noughties girl group Sweet Female Attitude who will be singing their No. 2 hit, Flowers.

In between the acts, visitors can spend time in Fort Gardens where there will be children’s party games, workshops, magicians, dragons, puppet shows, glitter painting and a helter skelter.

This year also boasts a number of outdoor activities, including crazy golf, a climbing wall and the Ravesham Kidz dance tent with music and dancing for all ages.
