More than 2,000 pints were quaffed as the sun shone at the Wicken Beer Festival on Saturday.
Organisers put on more than 20 beers and eight ciders for revellers – including local tipples Pickled Pig, of Stretham, and Monk and Disorderly, of Wicken.
Local bands entertained the crowds long into the evening while food and trade stands were kept busy, serving up more than 450 burgers and helping to raise hundreds of pounds for the Wicken recreation ground fund.
Organiser Liz Houghton said: “It all went very well. As usual we relied on the weather forecasters to get it wrong, they said it would rain all day but it actually turned our rather nice.
“As always, we are very grateful to everyone who turned out and spent their money to support us.”
