Festival-goers were equal parts delighted and surprised when local legends The Piccadilly Rats took to the stage on day two of the festival in Manchester’s Heaton Park earlier this month.

The band received a wave of support by Twitter users and much to everyone’s surprise, especially the band members, Mr Lord agreed to let the group perform.
