Mayor Rokhsana Fiaz said: We had a real Glastonbury vibe going on this year but I have to say ours was probably better than Glasto!

" Our amazing young people took centre stage in their fantastic Youth Zone and there was some creative sounds coming from the DJ and production workshops."

Other activities included a funfair and a specially created beach. Those with energy to burn could enjoy a range of sports.

Little ones were able to enjoy the world of Peter Pan in a themed play area as well as the children's big top, which featured a disco takeover.

Much of the format of this year's show was based on feedback from citizens' assemblies.
