One of the organisers, Bill Cartledge, said: “All went well! The feedback and goodwill seems to be really positive, and there were lots of heartfelt, appreciative comments online.”

‘Outfields’ formed part of the ongoing Zero Degrees Festival which is taking place in Louth throughout this month.

Other recent events included ‘Never Mind The Bullocks’ at the Cattle Market; ‘Culture at the Canal’ at Louth Canal; and ‘Big Comedy Night Out’ at the British Legion.
