No wonder, then, that plenty of you took the time to share the memories when we posted a photograph on social media.

Around ten thousand people were at the event and thousands spotted our post of the audience watching Dr and the Medics.

Mary Murphy loved it all but particularly Lindisfarne.

Amanda Spowart said: “I was watching from my flat window opposite it great view.”

Ian Melling was there and responded: “Spirit in the sky” in reference to the Dr and the Medics hit.

Elsie Dodsworth was there with friends and we thank everyone who shared the memories. In the meantime, here are some more photos of the event.
