A large marquee on Castle Green was bursting with local produce and gifts, while the fairground attractions, face painting and miniature donkeys were a huge hit with the youngsters.

Acoustic duo Big Sky performed and the festival culminated with the dog show, followed by the competition prize awards, the raffle draw and a very lively auction.

All proceeds from the event will be used to fund next year's festival, as well as for village assets and activities.

The festival was created by the combination of the village fair and show, previously run as separate events.
