The list of over 30 events at the Stalham Fringe Festival on Sunday, June 3 included a fairground organ, bands, dance groups, singers, choirs, tribal dancers, puppet and long-sword workshops as well as numerous food, craft and produce stalls, all in glorious weather.

The High Street was closed for traffic with the oldest brass band in East Anglia, the Stalham Brass Band, led by Tim Thirst, performing alongside other attractions.

Children made their own puppets and there were a range of stalls along the High Street selling food, beers, ciders, plants, crafts, wood carvings, confectionary, ice cream and milkshakes.

Cawdron’s butchers provided a hog roast and the Truck Stop a range of fast food.
