The grounds of a village hall were awash with music, families and wagging tales as the Beccles Rose May Fete returned for another year.

The annual event, which was held at Ringsfield Village Hall yesterday, saw an array of performances, from singers and bands, to local theatre groups and dancers.

A dog show got tails wagging while the busy event also hosted plenty of activities for the family to enjoy, including a bouncy castle and more than 30 arts and crafts stalls.

Musical entertainment was provided by the likes of the Lowestoft Longshore Men, Abby Bourke and a performance of songs from Les Miserables courtesy of Bungay Youth Theatre Group.

Anne Tackley, one of the helpers, said: 'The event went really well. I was making the teas and we ran out of cups in the end so that's a good indicator of how busy we were. The music sounded stunning and I saw lots of dogs, so the show went down well too.'
