The people of Baldock bore witness to another belting Balstock over the weekend as Hertfordshire’s biggest free music festival rolled into town.

It was another victory for the volunteers who pulled off a raucous 10th annual bonanza with a list of performers which was bursting at the seams.

More venues were involved than ever, including a Folkstock stage at the White Lion, metal and punk acts at Baldock Town Hall and plenty of sounds up and down the High Street.

A spokesman for the festival said: “Well that’s the end of Balstock and we really hope everyone enjoyed themselves.

“A big thank you must go to all the reps, sound technicians, runners, shakers and movers.
