Sponsored by more than 40 local businesses, profits from the night will go towards Macmillan Cancer Support, Wales Air Ambulance and North Wales NHS charity Awyr Las. Over the years the festival has raised more than £20,000 for good causes.

Phil said: "I enjoy it and it's a big buzz for me to organise it, see everybody there having a good time. And other people give their time to help.
