It was a roaring success at the 21st annual Wilburton Beer Festival (WBF) last weekend.

Crowds flocked to the Wilburton Recreation Ground to sample a range of alcohol, including craft beers and local ciders, as well as tuning into some live entertainment.

During a sun-drenched event, music from the likes of Blue Thunder, Sabertooth Timmy and Lizzy Hardingham livened up an enthusiastic audience, with children embarking on a fun-filled activity area which included inflatables and zorb balls.

There was also a special festival tipple competition, which this year, was won by Crystal Ship of Papworth Brewery.

The grand raffle draw totalled £1,069 and will go towards a host of local groups, including Wilburton Primary School for a new outdoor learning space and charity Beads of Courage, which supports local children with life-limiting conditions.

The final total raised is not yet known, but organisers expect this to be in the thousands.

One of the bands, Blue Thunder, paid tribute to the event on Facebook and said: "We would like to thank WBF for another cracking event.

"All round top event and hope to be back next year."
