Lavenham Arts Festival attracted huge crowds over the bank holiday weekend.

The three-day festival was packed full of entertainment with exhibitions, live music, artists workshops from Vernon Lever and David Gilbert and sculpture demonstrations by Kate Denton who created two life-like Shetland ponies from straw and mud.

Event organiser Lesley Thompson said: “It was an absolutely fabulous weekend.

“Everyone was incredibly happy and there were huge numbers of people about- the market place was heaving.

“One of the big attractions, apart from the brilliant horse sculptures, was the live music all weekend.
“We also had lots for children to do.

“Vernon and David drew an outline of Lavenham’s roof line and we invited the children to colour it in.

“It’s a beautiful mural with animals, cartoon characters, dolls houses and more.

“The event was a huge success - we had lovely weather and lots of people around.”
