Organiser Bob Warnes said: 'Last year's event set a bench mark which we thought would be hard to match. But, this year's was even better.'

Mr Warnes said there was a steady start on Friday night and Saturday was so busy the bar nearly ran out of supplies.

For the evening's so-called 'Marthambury' he said the crowds poured onto the green to listen to the Diabolics, the Full Measure and the Counterfeit Brits.

He added: 'The carnival parade on Sunday was amazing everyone put so much effort in and it really showed.'
