Hundreds of people have enjoyed a day of folk music on a Norfolk Estate, while the younger generation had fun hunting down Easter treats.
The fourth Easter Sunday folk day at the Raveningham Centre on the Raveningham estate, near Loddon, saw about 600 people enjoy music from acts such as Laura Cannell and Friends, Copperplate, Chris Ellis and Rosie Toll and the Norwich Sacred Harp Singers.
And 108 children had a fun afternoon as they hunted down 1,000 Easter eggs that had been hidden in a cherry orchard. They were helped by an Easter badger and hedgehog.
There was also morris dancing and story-telling.
The annual folk day has been set up by Mal and Liz Cannell, who run Norfolk Rugs and Ravenous Café at the centre and were the first people to move into the centre 25 years ago.
Their daughter Sarah Cannell, 39 and a painter, said: “It has gone really well, it was such a lovely day. It was magical to see the Easter egg hunt.”
