A near record crowd of almost 20,000 people basked in the sunshine for the eighth Splendour music festival at Nottingham’s Wollaton Hall.
Headliners The Specials travelled the short distance from Coventry to bring their brand of 2 tone Ska, first heard in the seventies, to an audience ranging from a few months old to fans in their eighties.
Nottingham singer Indiana, hot foot from Glastonbury, was especially proud to be in her home town with her family in the crowd.
Original girl power heavy weights Bananarama drew thousands to the Confetti stage with their hits from the eighties.
There was no Sitting Down for Manchester band James who played a string of nineties hits.
Australian brothers, the Pierce Brothers, produced their own energetic brand of folk music on the accoustic stage in front of a packed courtyard at the Elizabethan country house. Amongst other instruments played by this talented duo were the digareedoo, harmonica, guitar, drums and cobble stones!
With five stages and an increasing number of bands wanting to perform at this now regular festival for Nottingham – Bring on Splendour 2016.
