The big event of the week was the main festival in the High Street on Saturday afternoon.

As the pictures by our photographer Mark Bannister show, activities included donkey and tractor rides and a surf simulator.

A stage was set up in the town and featured live music and entertainment from the likes of Black & Gold and Allstars Dance Academy.

A taste of the seaside also came to the town centre as the theme for this year’s festival was ‘A Day at the Seaside.’

“We had about 3,000 people there on Saturday.”
