Paula Edmundson, company director of Classic Festivals and Events, said: “We were delighted at the attendance this year which, on the Sunday, doubled from last year.

“We have had a tremendous and extremely pleasing feedback with regards to the show. We actually had a granny ring into the office saying she loved the show and her grandchildren have not stopped speaking about it.

“The show continues to grow and we do believe it has something for everybody from Celebrity Chef Alan Coxon to the Festivals of Dogs area.

“We like to say that are not too big, or too small but just right and we are very lucky to have such a beautiful venue care of Alfred Bagge.”
