TRADITIONAL market stalls lined High Street and Church Green as hundreds of people flocked to enjoy the culmination of the Old Town Summer Festival.

The week-long festival concluded on Sunday with its busiest event – Old Town Day on Sunday – which saw over 70 stalls line the streets and dozens of people take part in the Old Town Show.

There were a range of fun competition classes for visitors to take part in, from cooking to gardening and photography.

Penelope Weston, chairman of the Old Town Association which organised the festival, said that it had been a big success.

“It is definitely feeling like a popular and well-established event now,” she said. “Old Town Day was very well attended, particularly in the morning when we got some sunshine, and all the stallholders seemed very happy with how it all went.

“We have had some wonderful things going on throughout the week, and the whole point is to make it a showcase for Old Town and a really good community event that anyone can join in, which is why I am very keen for schools to get involved.

“We did have some schools and children taking part individually which was lovely, and it is something I hope we can build on over the years.”

Old Town festival was borne out of a single secret gardens event in 2004.

Since then it has grown into a week-long celebration, with exhibitions concerts and shows running throughout the week.
