It was a carnival atmosphere at St John’s Hospice in Moggerhanger on Saturday as the Busk Till Dusk music festival kicked into gear.
The Sue Ryder hospice – which needs to raise £3,800 each day to just stay open – pulled out all the stops with 20 acts performing across four stages.
A hospice spokesman said: “It’s been an amazing weekend at St John’s Hospice.
“The entertainment, stalls, and kind words of support have kept us all going.
“A big thank you to the volunteers who have worked tirelessly and given up their time to make this a success.
“Bedfordshire has really got behind their local hospice.
“We just need time to recover now so see you all next year.”
