Picture gallery: Frettenham Festival sees record crowds

The sun shone this year for a record-breaking Norfolk village festival which will help pay for vital work to be done on community amenities.

The Frettenham Festival, which has been running for almost 15 years, is thought to have attracted around 5,000 people who enjoyed a day out browsing stalls, eating, drinking and enjoying music and displays in the main ring.

The annual event is organised by a small committee of just eight people and they are already looking forward to next year when the festival will be held on August 5.

Stephen Moore, vice chairman of the committee, said: 'We have had a tremendous response from people and some really lovely comments from people. It was the best show and everybody had a wonderful time.'

He said the ring entertainment including the all female international equestrian team Jive Pony had been fantastic.
