Iron Maiden's former lead guitarist will front a Big Day Out in Saffron Walden.

Dennis Stratton is Saffron Walden Round Table's headline act for a concert on the Common on Saturday, July 17.

He will be accompanied by Essex bands Dunn 'n' Dusted and Moonshine Coyote from 5.45pm, and bands from Fairycroft at 1pm.

A Round Table spokesperson said: "We’re all desperate to put something on for the community.

"It's been a tough 16 months but we're hoping to get everyone back together in a safe way.
