On Saturday, a line-up featuring a unique combination of emo, rock, pop, jazz and folk meant there was something to satisfy every musical taste.

The atmosphere was a little more laid back on Sunday, with StowFest acoustic sessions creating a relaxing and mellow vibe.

The two-day event marked the end of this year’s Stowmarket Festival.

The festival programme featured everything from art exhibitions and concerts, to skate events and comedy nights.

The parkour jam, held last Thursday, brought some diversity to this year’s schedule, showcasing the talent and skill involved in free running and parkour.

With children in mind, two sports days were also organised during the half-term week.

Dozens of children enjoyed StowSports Day at Chilton Fields last Wednesday, taking part in fun sporting activities.

Joe Francis, from organising body, Premier Sports, said: “Rather than sit at home in front of Playstations we help to get the children out to have fun and meet new people.”
