Neverland-themed Barford Festival is bigger and better than ever
Latitude Festival may have a rival on its hands.
The Barford Festival returned for its seventh year, and with this years event its biggest yet, organisers are hoping the 1,500 people in attendance will help its profile continue to grow.
The family event was held in aid of the village school, Barford Primary, raising �5,000.
The afternoon and evening was themed around Peter Pan's Neverland and entertainment ranged from performances from local bands, juggling workshops, fireshows, a ship steered by Captain Hook, zorb balls, and an inflatable assault course.
Mandy Periam, 42, a member of the Friends of Barford School Committee said she thought that someone was looking after the village on the day, as they enjoyed sunshine throughout after a week of heavy rain.
