Some put up a brolly while others chose to shelter undercover as the storm passed - but everyone still made the most of the entertainment.

Now in its 31st year, the festival has once again managed to secure performances by popular mainstream artists.

Last night's listings - titled 'Back in the Day' - featured Odyssey, Kym Mazelle and DJs Phats & Small.

Bridget Nurse, chairman of the festival's organising committee, said: 'Despite the rain, it's still so great to have the Festival Too stage back.'
