Music festival, StowFiesta, has seen a host of live bands descend on the Suffolk town alongside family activities such as a circus skills workshop and donkey rides.

The Festival originally launched in 2007 as 'StowFest' but in recent years has grown into the more family-orientated 'StowFiesta'.

Live music plays a big part, with disco funk covers band Chart Attack and 7-piece Ska band Rude and Reckless on stage today. A tribute to Elvis will perform on Sunday.

Hundreds visited the town on Saturday, enjoying the Suffolk sun with more expected on the second day of the event. Music fans were treated to clear skies and 20C heat and the warm weather is set to continue for the rest of the weekend.
