Have you got your cowboy hats and boots ready? Well, if not, it's not long now until Leek's first ever Country and Western Weekend.

The gun-slinging action and country music event will be taking place in Leek over the weekend of Saturday June 21 and Sunday June 22, both in Leek town centre and Brough Park.

The free extravaganza has been organised by the Leek Town Council Events Committee in honour of the late Steve Povey, who bequeathed £10,000 for the committee, which he chaired for many years, to put on a large-scale event for the town.

Entitled "Gunfight at the Oatcake Corral", there will be many cowboy, and a few Indian, re-enacters courtesy of Lincoln County Regulators and Lonestar walking the streets of Leek and also putting on a show or two in the town's main park of Brough Park. They will also have an 1800s style American West village set up in the park for visitors to see how life was back then.

There will be line dancing demonstrations and lessons and there will also be a few stars from the world of country music performing live within a large party marquee which will be erected by the bandstand in Brough Park.

Caroline King is one of the many acts set to keep the country music party going throughout the weekend.

Caroline pays tribute to the great country singers past and present from classic artists such as Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Billie Jo Spears to the contemporary sounds of Shania Twain, Gretchen Wilson, Reba McEntire, Dixie Chicks and a whole lot more.

Caroline engages with her audience and gives 100 percent to making sure everyone has a great night.

She is a dynamic singer with a diverse range of songs who is an instant success wherever she performs.
