By Emily Stott

Last night's barn dance in Sandwich was a great success with dancing, music and good fun.

Some visitors came from as far as Essex, Oxford and even Austria.

The Smalltown Romance band played a variety of tunes to get people dancing and Doug Hudson was the caller for the evening.

The barn dance is an annual event part of Sandwich Festival and always keeps the crowds coming year on year.

Sandwich Festival committee secretary, Siobhan Matthews said: "We've had a good turn-out, and really nice weather on Saturday. It was great on the Quay Green with the circus workshop.

"The barn dance always brings a lot of people out and hopefully it will continue, on Sunday (today) we have music on the Quay and there will be more music on Monday."

Tomorrow Market Street will come alive once more with an international food and gift fair, followed by a classic and vintage car collection on the Quay Green.

There will be more music in Cattle Market and the festival finishes with the much-loved duck race hosted by the Rotary Club of Sandwich.
