“Many congratulations to everybody involved,” he added.

Liz Davies, curator to of the St Neots Museum, said had been a steady stream of visitors all day.

“The mix of periods and re-enactors worked really well this year and there was something for everyone, from our ‘Benedictine monk’ to ‘Sir Isaac Newton’ who was explaining the laws of physics. All in all it was a good day and many thanks to all our volunteers and the public for coming along.”
