Hitchin came alive at the weekend for this year’s Rhythms of the World.

Thousands of people descended upon Hitchin Priory on Saturday and Sunday for the festival, which was backed by the Comet.

Acts including Gabz, Roxy Searle, Music and Spies, and The Twirling Canes played ‘music from around the world and round the corner’, before saxophonist Courtney Pine closed the show on the main stage on Sunday.

The event did not take place in 2013 following a particular muddy festival held in the grounds of Hitchin Priory the previous year.

Cath Cole, head of communications for Rhythms, said: “It was a fantastic event and we have received positive feed back, which has been phenomenal. We had something for all ages. We are really happy to be back home and thanks must go to Hitchin Priory and to the new management there for giving us a second chance.”
