The line up was made up of the very talented Psychoslinkys, The Folsom 3, Ade Payne Band who also did a later set with drum support from Adam Welton, and The Bailiff Buskers, all of which really got the crowd going even though for some of them it was their first live show.

On the day Yorkshire Fence hire aided in keeping the community safe by providing fencing and safety borders around the event, and Brighouse McDonald’s also showed their support for the event by donating water for the bands as well as coffee cups, napkins and burger packaging for the festival goers One of the organisers said: “A special thank you needs to go to all the volunteers and McDonald’s Brighouse whom without the day would have been more difficult to organise.

“Everyone had a great time and the weather even though it was a little cold but sunny for most of the day.

“We even raised some money to put back into the community, which will help fund our next event, the Christmas Street Market on Friday November 27 in Bailiff Bridge.”

Plans are already in place for the event to be held next year.
