The annual Southgate summer festival is set to return today.

With three stages of live music, the community festival will last from 11am until 5pm across the Southgate area.

The stages can be found on Chase Side, outside Vic Smith Beds and in Ashfield Parade.

As well as music, there will be horse-drawn carriage, a climbing wall, a carousel and bouncy castle for children and families to enjoy.

Anyone who attends will also get a free bottle of water to help cope with the scorching weather.
