Event publicist Carolyn Poole said this year’s had been the best ever, with about 12,500 visitors over the weekend.

She added: “Jean Christophe has been a big hit especially – with the ladies – and his demonstrations were packed with people.

“The music was excellent and we have been blessed with good weather.”
