'It's been a very exciting festival,' said William Galinsky, the festival's artistic director.

'We have had great audiences and there has been great excitement about the variety of work that we have been doing.'

He added the excitement was set to continue for last three days of the arts extravaganza which closes this Sunday.

He said: 'We have got some great shows for the final weekend: the Curious Directive show Spindrift, this is the third time we have worked with this exciting theatre company; the final four performances of Wild Life, this amazing show with young singer-songwriters; and there's still lots going on in the Adnams Spiegeltent as well.'
