You could almost have believed Glastonbury had descended on Tydd St Mary.

Every parking space was taken up in the village by visitors heading for the Rainbow Summer Solstice Festival.

A few people were having a quiet Sunday drink at the front of the Five Bells pub, but in the field behind there was music and merriment.

This is the second year Naomi Katze has organised the event. She said: “The people keep coming – it’s fantastic. There must be a lot of hippies around here.”

From the stage there was blues, folk and ska music. Sarah Beavis and her friend Susan Whitling had travelled from just outside Norwich for the event and were enjoying a picnic.

Sarah said: “We’re really enjoying it. The music’s fantastic and there’s a great atmosphere.”

Among the rows of stalls were arts, crafts and magic and at the back of the field fairground rides to keep the children happy.
