The festival, first held a decade ago, was cancelled in 2013 when organisers ran into financial difficulties.

Ninety per cent of the festival’s costs are raised through donations and fundraisers.

This year’s attendance figure is expected to reach 8,000.

Bands performed on the main stage as well as in the acoustic tent, while the comedy and cabaret tent featured live stand-up.

Yoga and zumba workshops were on offer, along with craft sessions and lessons in circus skills.

A range of food stalls and information stands were available for visitors to browse.

The festival ran from midday to 9pm yesterday.
