“We had a fantasic attendence - the best we’ve ever had,” she said. “And the music line-up was absolutely amazing and extremely well received.”

This year’s all-star line-up included performances from Remedy, Solid State featuring Tony Devenport, Jamie Williams and the Roots Collective, Rhonda and the Great Unknown, Back Porch, JS and the Lockerbillies and many more. Meanwhile, a fully stocked CAMRA real ale bar kept the music fans’ thirsts quenched throughout the day.

“The most lovely part of it was the families in the early part of the event - it was really great. The weather was also a highlight. It was outstanding.

“And we managed to keep the bar stocked up, it did a roaring trade,” said Patsy.
