And although a sudden downpour on Saturday left the musicians competing with thunderclaps, dry spaces out of the rain were found and the music continued. Just over 31 players took part, including the Wymondham Ukulele Group - who performed under an arch in Wharton's Court - Clive Richardson, the Potmere Players, Ronnie Suffling and the group Don't Lose Heart.

The festival's next event will take place at Market Place on June 3, where the band Stromm will perform from 11am to 1pm. This four-piece outfit performs their own songs with an emphasis on harmonies, catchy melodies and witty, sometimes dark lyrics.

Many more events are planned for 'festival fortnight' which runs from July 1 to July 16.
