Charity music festival Balstock returned for its 13th year at the weekend with “record number of attendees”.
Music lovers turned out for the free three-day festival which took place in venues across Baldock and in the High Street, where the Elaine La Roche stage - dedicated to the late festival treasurer - was set up.
Organiser G La Roche told the Comet: "What a stunner of a weekend!
"The weather shone bright, we had very little trouble and a record amount of people come through town.
"My committee members, reps and volunteers are all shattered, so a massive thank you to all of them.

"We still have money to gather from pubs and donations so we will announce a total raised as soon as we can.
"Thank you Baldock for all your support."
