Despite the cloudy sky, the event, organised by South Kirkby and Moorthorpe Town Council, drew crowds from across the town.

Joanne Lockett, who helped to organise the event, said: “It was a bit like Glastonbury came to South Kirkby.

“It was a good day considering the weather, it was a good community spirit, everybody came together.”
