Selby'S annual fun day takes place tomorrow with a host of events at venues across the town.

Organisers have been planning the celebration for the last 12 months and promise there will be something to suit everyone's tastes.

One of the highlights of the day will be the sight of 300 Roundheads and Cavaliers, complete with horses, cannons and armour, re-enacting the 1644 Battle of Selby on land behind the Scott Road Community Centre.

The spectacle has been organised by The Sealed Knot, Europe's largest historical re-enactment society, which will set up a soldier's camp in the grounds of Selby Community Centre with a display of arms at the arena in Portholme Road.

There will also be stalls and free rides and bouncy castle with music from the Barlby Foot Tappers, Bob Crossland Big Band and The Bogus Brothers between noon and 4pm.

Those who prefer their entertainment more relaxed can visit Selby Park to hear the South Milford and Markham Main brass bands.

Sporty types will be able to take part in the Selby Fun Run with Selby Striders from Flaxley Road School at 11am, where there will be a performance by the Stanley Starlite Majorettes.

The emergency services will also be around with the fire service on hand at the Community Centre for chip pan fire demonstrations.

Selby Police Station will be open to the public with opportunities to visit the cells and have your fingerprints taken. There will also be free bicycle security marking.

Selby District Council is hosting an interactive event to showcase its plans to improve the area's quality of life at Abbey Leisure Centre between 11am and 4pm.

Council staff will be on hand at FUTURE4U to answer questions and there will be the chance to win a children's pool party in a treasure hunt.

You can also get your dog security-chipped free of charge by the council's dog warden, Bill Parker.

If that is not enough, the glass roadshow, with mascot Billy Bottle, will be at the recreation ground to launch National Glass Week.
