The organisers of this year's Elveden Festive Fair were confident of setting a new record for the number of visitors at the weekend, as the event got under way with food and craft stalls and performances of live music.

The Elveden Estate, which organised the fair, believed 2,000 people had already gone through the gate just a few hours after the start on Saturday for the chance to see displays of food, drink and crafts by 28 local producers and a performance by the band Elfish Prezzies and the Christmas Crackers, who were all dressed as elves.

Frances Armstrong, marketing manager at the estate, said: 'I would say that over the course of the weekend it will be the biggest one we have ever done and today it feels really busy.'

The displays at the food market included ciders, home made breads and chocolates as well as smoked meats, cheeses, olives and dips produced in the Norfolk and Suffolk area.

There were also a number of other attractions to keep families entertained, including donkey rides, trampoline bungees and the chance to have a go on a Segway human transporter.
