A borough festival returned in style at the weekend in what proved to be "another big success".

Whitefield Festival was back at Sedgley Park Rugby Club's Park Lane base on Saturday, entertaining families with a plethora of entertainment.

And the miserable weather failed to dampen the mood as borough bands and other performing artists ensured the atmosphere was upbeat.

Running from 12pm to 11pm, the festival included children's activities, a barbecue party, a range of stalls, arts and crafts with craft beers and ales on offer.

Executive committee member of Sedgley Park Rugby Club, Richard Oxley, from borough-based safety and assurance consultancy Kenmac Associates, is involved in the running of the event.

He said: "The festival was another big success and it keeps getting better every year.

"We have created an annual event which showcases local businesses and talent while supporting some amazing charities.

"We were delighted that the weather did not stop the crowds from coming along and enjoying themselves so a big thank you to those that came along and had a great day out.

"All of the musicians, bands and stalls were from the Whitefield and Bury area.

"It was great to see them keeping the crowds entertained and doing some good business.

"Andy's Man Club and North West Air Ambulance were among the charities that were able to use the event to fundraise and raise awareness of their amazing work."

"We've had some amazing feedback from the local community and we are already planning for next year to be bigger and better again."
