The first ever Day in The Bay festival was a huge success on Saturday, said organisers, with plenty of local talent entertaining audiences throughout the afternoon and evening.

‘This was about local people putting on an event for locals and raising money for a local charity,’ said organisers.

‘We wanted to hook into that festival vibe while making it affordable and accessible for everyone. We hope to do it again next year and make it an annual event for everyone.’
