Festival-goers turned out in their thousands for the annual Todd in the Hole at the weekend.

Despite plenty of rain and wind, a record-breaking 15,000 made their way to the popular Todds Green event. 

From the moment the raindrops started falling on Friday, it was clear that nothing could dampen the spirits of the incredible crowd.

Undeterred, they danced, sang, and revelled in the high-energy performances of Rick Parfitt Jnr & the RPJ Band and Ultimate Coldplay, with legendary DJ Judge Jules bringing the house down at The Woods Afterparty.

While other events were forced to bow to Saturday’s adverse weather, the Todd team made sure the show went on!

The sell-out crowd was treated to a headline set from The Rocket Man tribute to Elton John, and Pat Sharp returned for the second year to entertain those attending the afterparty.

"Against extremely challenging weather conditions our amazing team behind the scenes made sure the show still safely went on and our visitors had a fantastic experience. We can’t thank them enough for donning their wellies and bringing their smiles.”
