Organiser Ann Bushby said: “We were surprised by how early the crowds came this year. We seemed to be crowded by 10.30 to 11am, and we only opened at 10am. People were queueing to get in before we even opened!”

The Festival has a popular blend of stalls, arena events and music. The money raised goes towards the InclinedPlane Trust which promotes the history of Foxton Locks and backs the Boilerhouse Museum.
