The afternoon of theatre and music saw guests treated to folk performances, play readings, fun and frolics.

Wild Ivy Theatre Company performed a unique re-enactment of Wind in the Willows, while visitors were also invited to decorate the wishing tree and watch a bee talk and hive demonstration at the Moor event.

Joint Venture – George and Jenny from Steeple Morden – entertained crowds before allowing readers, singers and poets to use their equipment.

Committee member Yvonne Chamberlain said: “I am still on a high. We had such a fulfilling day.

“We brought together different aspects of the arts, and had varied talented people performing. I do hope that this may open people’s eyes to poetry

“This project was the brainchild of Elizabeth Williams, who I personally thank. Without her inspiration, none of this would have happened.

“A very big ‘thank you’ to all who made this wonderful event possible.”
