Picture Gallery: Tasburgh Community Festival
It was a day of community spirit for one Norfolk village which hopes to have raised enough money to upgrade its play equipment.
The second Tasburgh Community Festival, which took place on Saturday, had a historical theme with The Knights of Skirbeck re-enactment group who demonstrated their sword fighting skills in the main arena.
The Royal Norfolk Regiment living history team also displayed second world war artefacts, vehicles and regimental outfits and live music played a major part in the festival line-up with nine bands playing throughout the day.
Other entertainment included Dr Ken's juggling and science show, a display by the Norfolk Fencing Club and traditional Punch and Judy. There was also be a children's fancy dress competition.
Organiser Tony Young said the event had been sponsored by local businesses and added: 'It's been fantastic and the weather has obviously helped. We also raised the bar a little bit this year with the amount of entertainment.
'It's been a chance for everybody to celebrate and we've doubled the amount of people from last year.
'You never know if it's going to come together or how many people are going to turn up because it's a free event but it's great to be able to sit back and feel like we've achieved something.'
