A night market drew visitors to Peascod Street in Windsor on Saturday.
The Windsor Night Market, arranged by the Windsor and Eton Town Partnership, ran from 6.30pm until 11pm, with food and craft stalls, live music and children’s rides drawing the crowds.
Windsor and Eton town centre manager Paul Roach said slight changes were made to the market compared to last year’s event.
More space was given to children’s entertainment, to try and pull in more families, while they had fewer food stalls, a tactic which he said paid off.
There were more youngsters present this year, Paul said, while many families stayed right until 11pm.
He said: “We had about 20 stalls, we took a few things that we needed to change from last year. We tried to introduce a few more non-food stalls, we had a wider range, and increased the number of children’s stalls and rides.”
Windsor and Eton Brewery supplied drinks to keep the grown-ups happy, and Paul says the bar staff had to make at least one trip to re-stock.
He said: “They ran out of lager. You can always tell how good an event is based on when the beer runs out.”
