The theme this year was All You Need Is Love and activities took place across  Addington Street, Spencer Square, Nelson Crescent and Vale. Square gardens There was vintage, bric-à-brac and handmade stalls as well as food and drink.

The Queen Charlotte, Falstaff Hotel and Eats n Beats were open, busker music was spread along Addington Street and there was a belly-dancing performance.

Vintage cars, tea-cups and a Ferris wheel were on Nelson Crescent, hairdresser Marcello was on hand with his scissors for impromptu trims which raised money for Pilgrims Hospices and the newly up-cycled caravan Cozi Van Tutti was on show.

Art, craft and entertainment activities for children and a treasure hunt were also on offer.

Spencer Square allowed people to  ‘seat, eat and enjoy’, with deck chairs provided by Friends of Ellington Park and entertainment from Sabina Desir, Screaming Ally and vintage music.
