NOT EVEN a downpour could dampen the spirits of revellers at the Letchworth Festival last weekend.

The rain made a brief appearance on Saturday afternoon but one organiser nevertheless hailed the event as "phenomenal".

The one-day festival featured bands, children's entertainers, stalls, fairground rides, food and drink and art activities.

There was also a large Continental market in Eastcheap which ran on both Saturday and Sunday.

As well as local acts, the music stage was graced by special guest MOBO award winner Kele le Roc, and headliners U2 tribute act U2/US4.

Foley Adigun, director of Rap-Aid, which organised the event along with North Hertfordshire District Council and Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, said: "It was phenomenal. I'd say when we had our special guest act and our headline act it was packed.

"What the festival did was create a feel good feeling on the day.
