    The merry-go-round, one of many rides and attractions on site

    This band was one of many arena attractions during the day

    Just some of the estimated 12,000 people who turned up on the day

    The crowds gathered both inside the ancient St Mary's Church, and outside in its grounds. Hundreds climbed the steps to the top of the church tower for a glorious view of the city.

    Children enjoyed many of the attractions, but particularly the horse-riding.
