Hundreds of revellers flocked to a day centre for people with disabilities for its annual mini-festival.

About 300 people visited Ferriers Barn, in Ferriers Lane, Bures, on Saturday to enjoy a day packed full of food, drink, games and music.

The mini-festival is an annual fundraiser for the centre and also aims to promote the charity’s work to the wider community.

Spokesman Administration officer Nikki Skews said: “It was absolutely brilliant.

“We were blessed with the weather because the rain beforehand softened the ground up a bit.

“It is a nice relaxed event where there is no entrance fee and residents love being able to come and go as they please.”

Lavender Rogue, Bijoux Toots and Gen Irving were among the performers.

Mrs Skews said: “We would like to say a big thank you to all the volunteers who helped. Without them we could not do it.

“Our sponsors – Colchester Brewery, Indigo Scaffolding, Killer Instinct Pest Control and Gemstone Mortgages – were also amazing.

“Bures Scouts even did the marshalling for free.”
