Ross-on-Wye Gala Day is an annual event during which the town centre is closed to traffic and various events take place in the streets. This year's Gala Day was held on bank holiday Monday, 26 May. I don't know if it is my imagination but I rather have the feeling that enthusiasm for this street fayre is on the wane due to new bureaucracy making it increasingly more difficult and costly to organize events and for traders to participate. There seemed to be large empty stretches of road which in previous years had been filled with various stalls and rides. However the day attracted many visitors who enjoyed the side-shows which were there.

'Jazz Quintet' outside the Maltings. The music was good but I must have a finger missing because I can only count four members! The Djabot Drum Band gave an excellent performance at the Market Building.
