A spokesperson for the event said: "the Bromyard folk festival has come a long way since its inception when a humble gathering of 150 people first attended.

"Today, it draws thousands of music enthusiasts to the town over the course of the weekend, providing a significant boost to the local economy.”

The festivals director, Lynne Barker, added: "The small team of volunteers who work tirelessly to put Bromyard Folk Festival together each year and place it on the calendar are the true stars of the show.

“From all of us, I would like to say a huge thank you to them. Please come and support your highly acclaimed event in a beautiful local setting."
