Bev Nun, from festival organisers, the Heeley Development Trust, said they were ‘really pleased’ with how the festival went.

Bev said the highlight for this year’s festival was a circus show.

“Overall, it’s just a brilliant day for the people of Heeley and a great chance to celebrate our community.”

The festival has been running for more than 30 years.

Attractions at this year’s event included a classic car and motorcycle show and circus and drama performances.

More than 150 stalls filled the park and there was a large car boot sale at Anns Road.

This year also saw a new multi-use games area, with activities such as bike polo, and a treasure hunt to make use of new nature trails in the area.

The Millennium Park stage also hosted young talent, such as Tandem, a three-piece rock band.

Elsewhere, former pupils of the old Anns Grove School were invited to enjoy tours around their old campus, bringing back many memories for visitors.
