While the open-top bus parade of the FA Vase-winning Morpeth Town FC was undoubtedly one of the highlights, the fair itself was also a huge success.

Visitors enjoyed the parade, a host of stalls and displays and a variety of entertainment, including escapologist Rob Roy Collins.

The fair was bigger than ever, extended up Newgate Street where there were food stalls and a food court, which proved very popular.

Morpeth Antiquarian Society also staged a local history exhibition on Saturday and Sunday.

Conflict and Fire included Morpeth in the First World War; the Somme; Battle of Jutland; and fires of Morpeth from the great King John fire of 1216 to Oliver’s Mill.
