"We had burger stalls, a gin bar with all different flavours, noodles, vegan sausages and more.


"This is the first time we've held this event, it's gone really well.

"We've had a mix of people come along, families, people just finishing work and even a group dressed up as the Peaky Blinders.

"We are planning for this to be a regular event but we don't know when it'll next be held yet.

"The stall holders have seemed really happy, it's been really busy and the gin bar sold out of gin, they had to go and get some more!"
