    James Nobel, director of the festival, said the free two-day event added about £10m to the local economy.

    "It's funded entirely independently and privately," he said. "The council obviously put a lot of resource into it", he added, but for the event to "go forward" the team would have to "tap into new investment streams".

  11. The Asian women who defied the driving taboo

    Susie Rack

    BBC News

    It was unusual for first-generation Asian women to learn to drive after arriving in England in the 1960s and 70s, but some were determined to ignore convention and get behind the wheel.

    Their stories are being told in a new exhibition.

    Jagdish Khaira

    Among those featured is Jagdish Khaira, 64, who credits her "forward-thinking" father for giving her the opportunity to learn to drive.

    She was nine years old when her family left Jalandhar, Punjab, India in 1964 for Leamington Spa.

    "In those days all we were expected to do was do manual work, use the buses to go wherever you wanted and driving itself was a luxury and you weren't expected to have luxuries," she said.
