They bring picnics, tables and chairs, gazeboes, even candelabra. The atmosphere is informal and epitomises Yorkshire friendliness, every one wandering about marvelling at the efforts that people have gone to for an evening of classical entertainment.

The spectacle is finished with a dazzling firework display in time to the 1812 overture. After which many spectators and performers retire to the sports club house for yet more refreshment.
