THEY were worried it would be a wash-out - but in the end the clouds parted and the sun shone through for another glorious Firth Park Festival.

Up to 3,000 people turned out to enjoy the sunshine, as the community united for what is becoming a strong north Sheffield tradition.

Organiser Chris Fox said: “At one point, with some fairly poor weather forecasted, it was doubtful as to whether we would go ahead.

“But the committee decided to push on and it was a wonderful day.

“We had between 2,000 and 3,000 people attend, which was a bit less than last year, but they were rewarded with some glorious weather in the afternoon.

“It was a real community day. We had some great music and dance on the stage, including the Romano Jillo dancers and bands Even the Odds and the M&J blues group.

“Our MP David Blunkett and the Sheffield Lord Mayor attended. Everyone had a great day.”
