Stallholder Alice Manuel, said:
“Despite the weather, the entire day was filled with happy, free people. It felt like the big family party everyone so desperately needed.
“Everyone just looked so happy. It gives me goosebumps thinking back to people dancing and singing in the rain to some amazing acts.
