Festival fever returned to Weston Primary and Nursery School on Saturday after the school playing field transformed into the stage for a huge party.

The event - which started 10 years ago - runs every other year and 2019's event saw live music, delicious food, a sound and light show and much more.

The sound of music filled the air all afternoon with the school choir opening proceedings - followed by Jasmine Donovan, an ex-pupil of the school.

Those who didn't want the party to end camped on the field, with a hearty breakfast provided the next morning.

2021 will certainly do well to match the buzz created from this year's event.
