Nearly 200 fans of all ages were able to sit back in specially zoned, Covid-19 regulation-friendly areas as local bands and singers including JS & The Lockerbillies, Chart Attack and Luke Fisher entertained them.

The festival is the first since the landmark venue rebranded itself as The Box Tree following the end of lockdown.

Operations manager Jamie Lee Smith said: “This event was always going to be a bit of a test for us to see if people would support the new name.

“Thankfully we have had very positive feedback since the rebrand, with some lovely comments from people who are supporting what we are doing, and that has proved to be the case today.
