A town's first ever gin festival proved to be a roaring success after completely selling out both days.
The inaugural event took place at St Nicholas Chapel in King's Lynn and was organised by the town's Round Table 54 group to raise money for two local charities.
Ryan Brown, chairman of the organisation, said: 'It was a fantastic weekend, absolutely brilliant.
'We had a great turn out of people coming to sample the artisan gins and they bought some to take home so we raised quite a bit of money.'
The cash, which is still being totted up, will be split equally between two local charities, Marshfields and Bridge for Heroes.
