A three-day festival celebrated its fifth year of music and cabaret in the countryside near Leiston.
Organisers brought the Maui Waui Festival forward by one week for 2017 – and were blessed with fine weather.
More than 100 bands played across five stages in Theberton, interspersed with walk-about acts, stilt walkers, circus shows and activities for children.
A new Maui’s Got Talent contest included entries from circus performers and musicians – with a 13-year-old singer-songwriter, Noah, taking home the title and dubbed a ‘star in the making’.
The Living Art Show attracted body painting artists and culminated in a colourful main stage parade.
Anne Steel, spokeswoman for the festival, which recycles 80% of rubbish and uses solar energy to power some of the lighting, said: “This fabulous, family-friendly, ‘feel-good-factor’ festival has fully made its mark in the county as an established small festival.”
