EARLSDON'S annual festival has been hailed as another success - despite the heavy downpours of rain.

Events took place throughout last week, culminating in a celebration in Earlsdon Street on Bank Holiday Monday.

Organisers said crowds arrived in a steady stream throughout the day and enjoyed everything on offer.

Coordinator Diana Slocombe said: "There is no way you can plan for a day of continuous rain, you simply carry on and that’s what all our visitors did.

"They came prepared for rain and enjoyed all the attractions."

The Coventry Morris Men won admiration for their dancing in the wet conditions while other events earning high praise were the Open Gardens in Hartington Crescent, choir singing at the Criterion Theatre and children's event at Earlsdon Primary School.

On Saturday the Old Clarence Pub held a family day as part of the festival to raise cash for the Mercia MS Therapy Centre.
