On a sunny afternoon Alan Davies was warmly received by a Latitude crowd bursting out of the comedy tent.

The QI star, wearing what he joked was a shirt from the 12th season of the quiz show, hit a chime with the middle-aged members of the audience telling stories of the traumas of child-rearing and married life.

His tale of a the difficulties of taking his two-year-old daughter to the swimming pool changing rooms drew a hearty laugh from the spectators.

Davies pulled in a large crowd with many having to make do sitting in the sun and watching on the big screen.

While the set never threatened to boil over it simmered along nicely.
