AS much of the country was enjoying a royal party, one town pulled out all the stops in its own inimitable style.

The people of Kirkby Lonsdale are never ones to miss a celebration but the Coronation saw three days of events culminating in a bustling street party on Sunday in the Market Square.

The town’s church service took place at 11am in the square on this occasion with the town crier kicking off the ceremony with an official coronation proclamation.

The service was accompanied by Kirkby Lonsdale Brass Band.

Children (and adults) were treated to alpaca petting, crafts and games, and a magic show, while walkabout street theatre acts proved extremely popular.

Traders from the town's weekly Thursday Charter Market were joined by other food and drinks stalls, while the revellers were regaled by music acts, and poetry read by event host Matt Sowerby.

Event organiser Phoebe Rodway said: "It was a great event because the square was busy from 11am until the end of the event at 6pm, and the sun was shining throughout.

"People seemed to really enjoy all of the things we organised and it was just a lovely atmosphere all day."
