Many of the stalls completely sold out of stock before the end on a very successful day.

"It was so, so good last time, let’s double it this time.”

"More than 4,000 people attended the event and almost all traders sold out within

a few hours, which demonstrates the quality of the goods on offer.

“The upcoming festival will be following a summer of free events that the council has organised this year.
