Revellers came from as far afield as North Wales to enjoy nine hours of free live music across three stages, as well as fairground rides, facepainting, body art, many stalls, food and drink.

The event was organised by the town’s Community Events and Festivals Working Party, which includes representation from both the town council and the community.

The headline act was Eddie and the Hotrods, who were among more than 20 acts that took to the stage.

Among the new attractions this year was an acoustic stage, which was intended to further widen the appeal of the event.

The move followed the introduction of a dance stage last year.
