Chatteris Midsummer Festival was back with bang, after a cancellation in 2020 and a scaled down version in 2021, it was full-on all weekend this year.

Saturday saw a return of the town's hugely popular walking parade, which had the theme of Fairy and Folk Tales.

Among those heading the parade were the festival's two princesses, Summer Sinclair and Ellie Blake, who were chosen by a judging panel after they drew pictures of their ideal princess.

The new Town Crier Matthew Sinclair was on duty all weekend as the two day festival took place at the Furrowfields Playing Field.

Hundreds of people from a huge range of local clubs, schools and organisations lined up for Saturday's parade which marched through the town to Furrowfields where there was a fancy dress competition from among those taking part.

The parade also including an appearance from the town's very own boxing champion Jordan Gill who was showing off his European Featherweight title belt.

There was a full programme of entertainment throughout the day at Furrowfields including story telling, a dog and duck show, morris dancing and continuing into the evening with a DJ set from Laura Dennis.
