Leicester’s crown jewels of family entertainment, Summer Sundae, returned for its eleventh year at the weekend.
The city saw De Montfort Hall and Gardens transformed into a haven for music lovers of all tastes and creeds.
With dozens of acts across five stages (main stage, indoor stage, Last FM rising stage, The Musician stage and eFestivals Comedy Tent) I was certainly spoilt for choice.
Arriving at the gates early on the Saturday I took a quick whistle stop tour of the grounds via a free rickshaw ride. This quirky little eco-friendly taxi was perfect for the chilled vibe of the weekend.

With dozens of acts across five stages (main stage, indoor stage, Last FM rising stage, The Musician stage and eFestivals Comedy Tent) I was certainly spoilt for choice. My day started off with a ride on the rickshaw to assess the lay of the land and then I went off for a browse through the marquee stores including a thorough hunt for gems in the vintage tents. This is where I discovered Geoff & Mildred Crank (finger puppets). This old knitted duo soon became the mascots for the days adventures (photos below).

My full review will be uploaded to The Public Reviews website tomorrow but for now here's some opinions from other people at Summer Sundae.
First, I caught up with parents of a member of I am In Love. The couple from Milton Keynes had never been to a festival before.
