Some 165 artists performed during the festival whilst 215 individual events were laid on for visitors to enjoy - 46 of which were fringe events in the town centre.

This year’s packed programme of events included a huge choice of concerts, ceilidhs, workshops, a Craft & Music Fair and a Food, Real Ale & Cider Festival and even Wine and Prosecco Bar.

With circus skills, craft workshops and street theatre shows, there was something for all the family to enjoy.

There was also a vast array of colourful dance displays, pub music sessions and open air concerts in the historic town centre. New for this year was the Kids Zone which proved extremely popular with families who enjoyed special shows from festival artists and theatre companies.
