The Feast was very successful and raised a record £7,000 for local charities.
The Charity Quiz on the Friday evening was a sell-out and was enjoyed by all.
Saturday evening saw record numbers in the Square and in the Forresters Arms watching and participating in a traditional quoits competition and the Mouse Derby.
Sunday afternoon attracted 308 runners, the highest ever, in the renowned 7-mile Kilburn Road Race. Also, hundreds of people, including many families, enjoyed circus clowns, duck races, games, a bouncy castle, live music, a Grand Raffle and many stalls overflowing the village square. Late afternoon, following a well-attended open-air church service, dozens of villagers and visitors watched the famous Lord Mayor’s parade - a tradition dating back many years.
The Feast has made donations to; Yorkshire Air Ambulance (£1,000), Thirsk Rotary (£750), Friarage MRI Scanner Appeal (£750), St. Mary’s P.C.C. (£900), Jerry Green Dog Rescue (£200), Thirsk R. B. L.
