The entertainment for this year's Party in the Park in Melksham has been announced. Once again there is... a something for all the family with music, dance and daredevil acts.

Headlining this popular event will be T.Rextasy who will pay a musical homage to the late, great Marc Bolan and T.Rex, the glam rock icons from the '70s. Described by one music critic as "brilliant" the tribute band will perform many of T.Rex's hits including Get It On, Jeepster, Telegram Sam and Metal Guru.

Also taking to the stage are special guests Dodgy, the power pop trio that came to prominence in the Britpop era whose biggest hit was Good Enough, which reached number four in the charts. Dodgy will play their old hits plus new material when they come to Melksham's biggest outdoor music event in July.

Supporting the main acts are Bath group the Pocket Men and Josie and the Outlaw, a rockabilly and blues band from Swindon, plus a host of local musical talent.

The thousands of people who attend the annual Party in the Park will also see two amazing daredevil performances. Thrills are guaranteed by the Vander Wheel of Death. This amazing circus act sees artistes perform acrobatics inside and outside spinning circular open-ended cages fixed to a nine metre steel structure that revolves around a central axis.

The Joseph Peace Fire Stunt Spectacular promises to be equally awe-inspiring. Combining modern circus and pantomime fun this highly original show blends amazing fire stunts with comedy and audience response. A series of flame-defying stunts will be performed, culminating in the grand finale that sees the stuntman jumping through a wall of fire on a BMX bike.

Lovers of modern and traditional dance will enjoy a Zumba demonstration, Melksham's Enigma Twirlers and the Chippenham Morris Men.
