IT was all things bright and beautiful at the Stokesay Flower Festival.

Some great blooms were on display at the 37th annual celebration held at its church.

‘Come Dance With Me’ was the theme over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

Flower arrangements filled the church and children of the village prepared their own surprise display outside in the churchyard.

The festival is a community event and on Sunday it included a ‘Songs of Praise’ style service. Visitors were able to use parking facilities at the nearby Stokesay Castle, run by English Heritage.
