Video: Grimsthorpe Festival draws in the crowds

Crowds enjoyed music, entertainment and sunshine as Grimsthorpe Festival made its return.

The event was back yesterday (Monday) after being called off last year following torrential rain.

But this year visitors queued for more than an hour to get in to the event.

There was live music across five stages, classic car displays, comedy performances, poetry readings, circus acts, dancers and children’s entertainment.

The main music stage hosted rock and indie bands while the other stages around the site hosted performances from acoustic acts.

Demonstrations in the show ring came from A Bit on the Side from the Side Saddle Association, dance groups, The Knights of Skirbeck and the Lionheart Company of Bowman.

And those looking for a more relaxing atmosphere could pay a visit to the therapy and massage zone or browse the farmers’ market.
