THE acts were said to have been stunning – each and every performance magnificent.

Although many musical delights featured over the 16-day-event, the highlight was Horace Taylor whose incredible voice “knocked ‘em in the aisles”.

Another singer worthy of note was the brilliant Jill Meager who wowed the crowds with her spectacular voice.

Both of them set the high standard of competition, the quality and spirit which made the festival the highly regarded organisation it was.
