James Page, marketing and communications manager for the event at Cambridge City Council, said: “The Big Weekend has been a huge success; its return this summer welcomed by thousands who visited Parker’s Piece across the three days.

“People poured onto the Big Weekend site for Friday’s fireworks and big names, S Club Party and Heather Small, the best of local bands on Saturday along with headliner The Hoosiers, and major stars at Sunday’s Mela, including Panjabi MC and Apache Indian.
