Visitors were entertained by a great line-up of music organised by David Gray including the Old Guys, The Headhunters and Coreil. They were also Heritage tours, art gallery and live art demonstrations by local artist Heather Griffin.

Visitors came from across the region and even included The BBC Apprentice finalist Jessica Cunningham pictured meeting one of her biggest fans Jacob Ewing from Packington.
