More than 1,000 people embraced their hippy side at a summer solstice festival on Saturday.
Visitors packed the field behind the Five Bells, in Tydd St Mary, for the first running of The Rainbow Summer Solstice Festival.
There were 65 arts, crafts and entertainment stalls for revellers to enjoy, including a wand making stall for children.
Live music provided the soundtrack to the festival and an array of foods were available.
Funds were raised for two charities, Guide Dogs and Cancer Research UK.
Organiser Naomi Katze said: “It was fantastic. The sun shone all day and there was a happy, hippy feel to the whole festival.
“There was a great selection of different stalls and an amazing mix of people.
“I’m still numb at the turnout, and all the stallholders have asked to book for next year.”
