This year it cost the town council £22,568.

Of this, just shy of £17,000 went to salary allocation, which the council says is an internal movement of salaries between various cost centres representing the services it provides.

The festival – which ran from October 6 to October 15 – brought in £2,500 through ticket, advertising and sponsorship income and stallholder fees.
