A music festival that is a major part of a town’s cultural calendar saw hundreds of people attend.

People came out in force for this year’s Stowfest events, which were held on Chilton Fields, Stowmarket.

The event acts as a showcase for up-and-coming bands from East Anglia and further afield.

Bands on Friday night, Serious Delirium, East Town Pirates and 23X, all kindly donated their fees to charity.

People attending on the Saturday could listen to acts across three stages and a dance tent.
