Bridget Nurse, chairwoman of Festival Too, said the event had been very successful so far.

She said: “It has gone very well. The weather has been very nice and the events have been very well attended.

“We had the Sunday event for the first time but even though the weather was a bit hit and miss people still turned out for it.”
