BoroFest 2015 featured performances from the cream of the town’s musical talent including Roxy Searle, Tom Braggins and Rockface.

And with the start of the football season less than a month away, fans got to meet the club’s much talked about manager in his new stomping ground. The club’s chief executive Barry Webber said: “I am over the moon with how events unfolded on Saturday for our second annual BoroFest. The weather was perfect and it was amazingly satisfying for all involved to see over 1,100 people coming along to support the event in what was a real relaxed, happy, community vibe the whole day.”

Mascot Boro Bear was also on hand to get everyone behind the team ahead of their pre-season friendlies against Nottingham Forest, Millwall and a Spurs XI.
