The gig ended with Brown Eyed Girl and Gloria.  Included in the set list was a haunting version of Summertime in England.  The line-up included a couple of surprise guests to sing with him, including Joss Stone who performed a memorable duet of Crazy Love with Van.

The Extravaganza is a yearly event at the Abbey and this year tickets sold out early as fans travelled from far and wide to watch Van Morrison and jazz and pop singer-songwriter Jamie Cullum.

The audience enjoyed beautiful weather as they waited for Van Morrison.  The crowd were entertained by the wonderful sounds of Jamie Cullum as they picnicked on the lawn.  The Wells Cathedral Jazz Band played to their biggest ever crowd and showcased their talented teenagers.

The unforgettable evening was brought to a close by a stunning firework display.
