Thousands attend music event on Isle of Wight

A music event held on the Isle of Wight last weekend has attracted thousands of revellers to the island.

Ryde Regatta consisted of two full days of entertainment centred around family-based activities, giving parents somewhere to take their little ones during Isle of Wight holidays.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, thousands of people took to the town's seafront in order to watch the firework display that brought the event to a close.

Ryde Inshore Rescue co-ordinated the weekend's entertainment, which included live music from the likes of Switch.

Games on the seaside town's green were also popular among the families who attended Ryde Regatta.

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays often choose to head to Ryde, making it one of the most popular places on the island for a day out.

Attractions include an ice rink and ten pin bowling, Appley Park's pitch-and-putt golf course and tennis and a children's play area at Puckpool Park.
