In modern times it’s stil very popular but back then the whole town got involved.

Sayers) wrote asking if the Councill illuminate the Town Hall and the Band stand during the cricket week, June 22nd to 27th on the same terms as on previous occasions; also applying for permission to erect poles in Carfax and North Street for the decorations.”
