Daub on your facepaint and celebrate a genuine mythical hero on Sunday in Seething Wells.

Surbitonians will come together once again for the Seething Festival, an afternoon of music and more commemorating the exploits of beloved goat-boy Lefi Ganderson.

Take part in the annual parade around the town - led by a terrifying, and surprisingly maneuverable, life-size model of giant Thamas Deeton, vanquished by Lefi all those years ago.

The giant has been recycled this year, for the first time. Landlord of the Lamb pub Adam Lewis said: "I've got him in a van. We're hoping to have him out tomorrow to do a couple of repairs.

"We thought it was such a good gian last year we're doing a bit of recycling."

The fun will begin in St Andrew’s Square in Maple Road from 2pm on Sunday, February 23.

Join in online on the day by tweeting with the hashtag #seethingfestival.
