The 37th Marbury Merry Days will be held in support of St Michael and All Angels Church on May 14-15.

In addition to the usual packed programme over the weekend, the main event will be a display by the Extreme Mountain Bike Show starring Danny Butler, a British and European Trials Bike champion, who will give three shows each day. When he’s not performing in the ring Danny will be available to chat and show his bikes.
