Torrington May Fair has been hailed as one of the best ever by organisers as crowds packed the Square today (Thursday). May Queen Saffron Sanders was crowned by crowner Amy Watson as the sun beat down on the occassion. The celebrations included a David Bowie-inspired act by the Torrington Cavaliers and entertainment from The Plough Youth Theatre. Great Torrington Bluecoat pupils danced around the may poles and even the crowds joined in. For the first time the fathers of the Mayfair entourage joined the mothers to sit at the front of the audience. This afternoon saw entertainment from Great Torrington Corps of Drums band and STREETZ dance crew. At 7.30pm tonight there will be the Torridge Cup Final at Vicarage Field and tomorrow (Friday) the round the tree races at 6pm in the Sqaure. Saturday will be the annual carnival, with floats leaving the Old Bowling Green at 6.15pm. And if you missed out on the action, the Gazette was live streaming some of todays event - catch up on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
