Two re-enactor groups are gearing up for a shoot-out in a Staffordshire Moorlands town.

Lincoln County Regulators will be joined by The Lonestar Group as they take over Brough Park in Leek on June 21 and 22 for the town's first ever Country and Western Weekend.

The free event is being hosted by the Leek Town Council Events Committee which was left £10,000 for such an event by former community leader Steve Povey after he sadly died in October 2011.

The Lincoln County Regulators are a team of historical re-enactors of Early American history who perform across the country bringing to life the country and western era.

The Regulators, along with the Lonestar Group, will be setting up a western style village in Brough Park for the Country and Western Wekend in June.

The re-enactors will then wander (well - swagger) around Leek town centre on the morning of Saturday, June 21, while a mass line-dancing lesson takes place in Derby Street.

The cowboys, and a few Indians, will then go back down to the town's main park for a number of 'gun fight' re-enactments.

They will be performing again in the park on Sunday. Visitors to Brough Park will be able to take a look around the country and western village and speak to the re-enactors about how life was back then.

Country music artists from across the country will also be visiting Leek for the Country & Western Weekend to entertain from within a marquee in the park over the two days and evenings.

These acts will include: Carolann B and Allan Watkiss, Caroline King, Coles Country, Donna Wylde, Monty Montanna, Thorne Hill and Travis Logan.

There will also be many stalls at the event selling a range of country and western items and there will be additional fun for all the family including a bucking bronco and western games.
