Revellers at the Maidenhead Night Market in the High Street were treated to a performance from X Factor star Stevi Ritchie on Saturday.

The market, which ran from 7.30pm to 11.30pm, featured a bouncy castle, outdoor bar and stalls selling a variety of foods.

The food, which included Peruvian vendor Peru Sabor, was arranged by Eat on the High Street, and an outdoor bar was set up by staff from nighclub Smokey Joes.

Speaking before his set list, Ritchie said about performing in Maidenhead: "It's random.

"I played at Smokey Joes in January and they invited me back."

Town manager Steph James said: "It was just getting people to come into the town at night.

"It is promoting the night time economy, showing it is safe to come into town at night.

"We had lots of families and kids dancing to Stevi Ritchie.

Speaking of future night markets, she added: "We just want to grow it, and add stalls."
