RESIDENTS across the district gathered in big numbers to enjoy this year’s Ashfield Show on Saturday.

The free one day spectacular, which celebrated its 33rd year, offered a range of attractions for young and old.

Headline act Stacey Solomon, who was crowned Queen of the Jungle in I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here and took third place in X-Factor in 2009, wowed the crowds with a variety of songs.

The event also featured a host of local bands, including Kirkby band Xpose, who recently impressed judges at their 02 gig in London, as well as talent from further afield, such as The Greatest Take That Tribute and The Glee Club.

The evening’s entertainment culminated in an ever-popular firework finale.
