Tingewick village held its annual fete and beer festival on Saturday June 23.

The day was filled with entertainment and activties, from two birds of prey shows to classic car displays and numerous charity stalls.

Around 1,000 visitors were treated to music from local bands the Jazz Numbers, Twisted Echo and BandTailFeathers playing until 11pm.

The beer festival, sponsered by local individuals and businesses, was a huge success, with visitors running the stock dry.

Charity Stalls included volunteers from Make a Wish foundation and the Heart Foundation.
