ONE HUNDRED and seventy hours of traditional song, music and dance performed by young and old saw thousands flocking to Bromyard last weekend.

One of the final festivals of the summer saw fresh-faced young bands such as 422 performing alongside music scene veterans such as Bill Caddick.

Other performers taking to the stage included Vin Garbutt, the Doonan Family Band and Dangerous Curves.

Concerts, a grand ceilidh and a Morris procession were also on the menu and those who preferred a hands-on approach enjoyed workshops, sing-a-rounds and meet-the-artist sessions.

The whole town was involved with events taking place at various locations and even the town's churches conducted popular folk services on Sunday morning.

Youngsters were not forgotten with a variety of events held throughout Saturday and Sunday while shoppers were delighted with a craft market in which traditional craftsmen displayed their produce.
