More than 3,000 people enjoyed attractions of all sorts at a Killamarsh Gala – which many voted the best ever.

Visitors to the event next to the village’s sports centre on Stanley Street made the most of the best weather of the bank holiday weekend.

Top of the bill on the live stage were Derbyshire Band of the Year Somewhat Unprepared, playing a mix of covers and original material.

Killamarsh’s Got Talent winner April Parker received a warm reception for only her second live performance, supported by three of the winning acts from Eckington’s Got Talent.

Another popular act were the Zubiadah belly dancing group from Mosborough, while a variety dance styles were demonstrated by members of the Stepping Out With Michelle school from Beighton.

A display by the Phoenix falconry team proved popular, while other attractions included WWF-style wrestling and a Wheel of Fortune supplied by the Elmwood Farm Inn.

One of the organisers Alan Marsden said many people had told him it was the best gala yet.

“It was brilliant, a fantastic day and we were busy throughout and the weather certainly helped – it was the only decent day of the weekend,” he added.
