Families have been “thoroughly enjoying” themselves, at a villages’ food, craft and wood festival  - which has returned this year. 

With demonstrations from top chefs and a chainsaw competition with some of the UK’s most impressive carvers, food and craft-lovers were spoilt for choice at this year’s Sandringham festival. 

The event took place on Saturday August 7 and Sunday August 8.

Marge Needham, from Living Heritage Events which runs the festival, said: “We have had a lovely time. It’s fabulous to get back to Sandringham which is our favourite venue. 

“People have come out and thoroughly enjoyed it. They have also been telling us how safe they feel.
