Round Table chairman James Selby said: “We would like to thank everyone in Kenilworth and the surrounding area for supporting the event, despite the muddy conditions.

We would also like to thank everyone for putting up with the traffic and other disruption the event inevitably causes, but hope that all appreciate it is all for a good cause.”

While final figures are not yet known, the annual gala brings in tens of thousands of pounds each year.

The money is spent on major community projects around the town and donations to good causes and charity groups each year.
