Old Gaffers Festival recommended for Isle of Wight holidays

Families planning Isle of Wight holidays during the current half-term break have been advised to attend the Old Gaffers Festival in Yarmouth.

The News of the World's Trisha Harbord has included the Yarmouth Harbour boat show in a list of ideas which could deliver a "great day out with the kids" during National Family Week.

During the show, which takes place between June 4th and 6th, more than 100 boats of a variety of shapes and sizes will be seen out on the waters, including the titular Old Gaffer sailing ships.

Ms Harbord drew attention to the fact that the festival will also include a music event, with the grand opening set to be hosted by Rob da Bank, the DJ responsible for the Isle of Wight's Bestival event.

Among the musicians who will perform at the Old Gaffers Festival are The Cuban Brothers and The Correspondents, as well as tribute acts Abba Fever and The Silver Beatles.

Other attractions at the family-friendly event include a market, a craft fair and a flower festival.
