Medieval knights clashed in Thorpe St Andrew over the weekend to help celebrate St George's Day.
The event, near Norwich, saw record crowds gather to watch the display on Sunday, according to the town council.
While St George and his knights battled in the main arena at Fitzmaurice Park, off Pound Lane, there were also historic crafts and demonstrations taking place throughout the day.
It started at 11am with a car boot sale, and was officially opened at 1pm by town mayor Ian Mackie.
The event also featured a Punch and Judy show, maypole dancing and the South Walsham Dog Obedience club.
