Thousands of the people have enjoyed the drama, music and other artistic delights of the Bury St Edmunds Festival - with many praising it as the ‘best ever’.

The festival, which began on a high note with maverick violinist Nigel Kennedy, ended at the weekend with a community and family focus as West Suffolk Youth Jazz Orchestra took to the stage at The Apex where audiences of all ages also enjoyed a new interactive retelling of Rumpelstiltskin with The Rattler.

Nick Wells, festival manager, said: “It’s been absolutely amazing - almost every day there has been something extraordinary and we’ve had really good sized audiences.

“A lot of people have been saying it’s the best festival ever. Having Nigel Kennedy in the programme raised the profile and anticipation about it all. It was a great way to start the festival and it carried on with tremendous responses from audiences.”

Asked about what he has lined up for next year’s festival, Mr Wells teased: “I think I’m more organised for next year than I’ve ever been before. I’ve got a few tasty morsels pencilled in.”
