District council portfolio holder for grow the economy Frances Cartwright (Con) said: “It’s fantastic the town attracted such numbers. The feedback we’ve had from retailers, many of whom got into the spirit of the weekend and dressed up, certainly reflects it was a great weekend.

“We’d like to thank the residents of Stamford for their support on all three days and the visitors who made the effort to attend.”
