Coventry Editorial 8th May, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A GREAT day, fantastic atmosphere, the best yet – just some of the words used to describe this year’s Earlsdon Festival.

The two-week festival culminated in the street fayre which was enjoyed by thousands of people under clear blue skies.

It had begun on Sunday, April 20 with a special Easter Fun Day held at the Old Clarence pub in aid of the Mercia MS Therapy Centre.

Last year 10,000 people turned out for the main day of the festival with organisers predicting a similar turnout.
