Wisbech’s sixth Rock Festival has been hailed as ‘the best yet’.

Around 3,000 people are estimated to have enjoyed Sunday’s event in Wisbech Park.

And organisers Wisbech Town Council, through its Festivals Working Party, will be looking to make next year’s festival even bigger and better.

The day provided more than eight hours of music – including thrash metal, indie pop and rock, bands playing covers, a first-time DJ event, all headlined by Seventies hit makers Vanity Fare.

There were also fairground rides, charity stalls, refreshments and a beer tent and town clerk Terry Jordan said: “The community feel was absolutely fantastic – the whole day went off without any incidents.

“The park was full of people of all ages. There was a fantastic atmosphere and we were really blessed by the weather.

“People were saying ‘this is great, let’s have more of it’ and it was most definitely the best Wisbech Rock Festival, with the biggest crowds.”

Mr Jordan said the working party may well look at trying to secure sponsorship for next year and taking up a bigger area of Wisbech Park to build on the success.

Whiskey Twist kicked off Sunday’s event at noon and they were followed by Scumbus, Jaws of Cerberus, Rapture, Lizzy on the Loose, Phoenix Calling and Sound Station, with Vanity Fare bringing the curtain down at around 8.15pm.
