There will also be local interest after Lily Carlaw, who attends Southfield School in Kettering, was selected for the England team in both discus and shot.

Throws Fest is designed as a celebration of throwing and is a great spectator event with grandstands on top of the action, music, food and merchandise.

The event incorporates all ages and abilities with a mixture of elite, U18 international and open competitions.
