WICKEN hosted a festival of arts, crafts flowers and music over the Bank Holiday weekend, with artwork and live music from local people.

The festival, held at St Laurence's Church, took 'All Creatures Great and Small' as its theme, and the flower arrangements were based on birds, animals, fish and creepy crawlies.

There was a teddy service for youngsters and a competition for children to draw a picture based around an animal theme, and all the arts and crafts took a subject from the natural world.

The arts and crafts exhibition was organised by local artist and historian Anthony Day and included entries from Wicken artists Terry Beard, Shirley Covill, Susie Herbert, Jennifer Sargent and Richard Sell.
