VIDEO: Great day at Byron Festival with bands, choirs, peacocks and crowds

Waiting for Video...

Crowds flocked to celebrate the culmination of events as the 2014 Byron Festival came to a close at Newstead Abbey on Sunday.

Mansfield Male Voice Choir and Newstead Brass Band performed during the day much to the delight of visitors.

With free shuttle buses from Hucknall, the community celebrated their connections to the poet at his ancestral home at Newstead Abbey and the weather helped make the day a great success.
