Organiser Mark Harrison said: “It was a hugely successful weekend.

“We are all very proud, it has taken us time to get credibility but every year we are managing to attract the bigger acts.

“This event is for the public and I want them to feel proud their town can put on such a great event.

“Thanks to everyone that came and had a good time with us, we’ve had great support and the feedback this year in particular has been really positive,” he added.
