Tens of thousands of people turned out for the Peterborough Arts Festival at the weekend with plenty of fun for all the family.

The festival brought together the visual arts and performing arts with plenty of music and dancing and even the smallest theatre in the world.

And as our pictures show, there was no shortage of entertainment throughout the days and evenings.

Hightlights of the festival included children try their hand at activities like trapeze and building a human pyramid with No Fit State Circus.

There was disbelief at a 30ft pig called Gloria - with a 10 minute piece of theatre played out for those who ventured inside her - and plenty of laughter as Bruce Airhead performed with, and then inside, a six foot balloon.

There was plenty of food and music to enjoy, and a beer tent from Castor Ales.

Another major highlight was the spectacular light and sound sculptures which transformed historical buildings such as the Guildhall into temporary artworks.

The projections in Cathedral Square were part of Peterborough Enchanted City by Magnetic Events.
