Organiser Beverley Milner Simonds told the Mercury it was a ‘glorious’ day and she is very pleased with the success of the event.

She said: “We are thrilled with how the 10th festival went. The streets were crowded from when we opened to when we closed.

“We have had great feedback from our traders, local businesses and visitors. It was a glorious day to be beside the seaside.
