With the exception of two ticketed concerts, the event was completely free for people to enjoy.

After kicking things off with a mad Hatters tea Party on Friday, the rest of the weekend was bursting with performance, art, dance, music, craft, local history, grave yard tour, poetry, workshops food and drink.

On the line-up was a ballet performance from former Northern Ballet dancers, local history and grave yard tours, a maze, an art exhibition and plenty of live music for the whole family.

The event, which is is entirely run by volunteers with all profits going to fund next year’s festival and support the Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Sue Thompson said: “The Folk night was brilliant and what about those pies. Already looking forward to next year’s.”
