On Sunday more than 50 mechanical organs lined the streets of the town centre attracting thousands of visitors to the area.

Organiser Jonathan Ling said: “I was really blown away with the wonderful support we had from the public the event is only in its second year and by midday the streets were packed with happy smiley people listening to all the music from these wondrous machines.

“Speaking to a couple of the shop owners they were really happy with the day and the extra trade the event had attracted for them.”

Building on last year’s success the organ festival is the largest event of its kind in the UK and it also coincided with an open day at The Grange Collection in Palgrave where Mr Ling’s private collection of mechanical music machines was on display.
