Dancing, music and fun fair rides were all part of the popular Wisbech Festival.

Hundreds of families packed into the town’s market place to enjoy the festival, which had an international theme.

Wisbech Town Council’s festivals committee organised the annual event.

Deputy town clerk Susanah Farmer said: “It was a lovely day. The market place was full of people having a lovely time and mixing together.

“We had very young children there enjoying the entertainment with pensioners tapping their toes to the music.”

The fun-packed programme included a performance by Latvian dancers along with folk tunes sung by Zepyry. Sound Station, Domica and Diane, Dima, Storm Dogs, Suzanne and Laska, Renata and Gifford were also on the bill.

There was also an opportunity for people to have a go at break dancing.

Attractions also included free face painting, balloon modelling, fair rides, bouncy castle and a slide for children.

A clown and the Vivien Fire Engine Trust also delighted youngsters.

The town will be holding its armed forces day in the town centre on Sunday, June 22.
