Photo gallery: 33rd annual Sweeps Festival in Rochester

Thousands of spectators and more than 60 Morris sides came out in glorious sunshine for this year's Sweeps Festival.

It is the 33rd year in a row the event has taken place over the May bank holiday weekend to celebrate the coming of summer.

There was music across more than a dozen stages in Rochester, including in the High Street, Rochester Castle Gardens, pubs, a hotel and a century-old barge.

Punters drank local ales and ciders to the sound of folk banks from across Britain and beyond.
