More than 1,000 people enjoyed fire breathing, puppet theatre and reenactments at the first day of a popular dragon-themed festival.
Dragon Fest, which is held at West Stow Anglo Saxon Village and Country Park, near Bury St Edmunds, celebrates all things dragon and continues tomorrow from 10am-5pm.
Epico the dragon was back by popular demand and proved very popular along with the Beowulf and Grendel Puppet Theatre.
There is also fire breathing displays, dragon nest building, face painting, archery, children’s craft workshops and a wide range of food and drink and stalls selling dragon-themed products.
Glynis Baxter, heritage officer at West Stow, said: “This is the fourth year we’ve done this and it’s great to see it’s still so popular.
