6:22pm Sunday 18th August 2013 in News
A TOWN gala beat the rain to attract the crowds who enjoyed two days of fun and entertainment.
The annual Ferryhill Town Gala took place over Saturday (August 17) and Sunday (August 18) in the town’s market place.
Despite the heavy rain on Saturday the event, organised by Ferryhill Town Council, proved to be a success and it attracted a healthy crowd.
Ferryhill Town Band performed as did singer Ethan Simpson and there was also samba drums, stalls, face painting and other attractions.
An art and photography exhibition was housed in Ferryhill Town Hall for visitors to view.
Councillor Peter Atkinson, of the town council, performed with the town band.
He said: “It was a really good weekend. The weather was a bit iffy on Saturday but on Sunday the sun really got out.
“It seems to have been very successful and there was a good crowd there. It seems to have gone well.”
