BRILLIANT sunshine drew the crowds to the Stratford Shakespeare on the River Festival Medieval Faire Day and Makers Markets on Sunday.

There were children's games on the Village Green, opposite the train station, local stalls and demonstrations, street performers, exhibitions, the Bard's Pop-Up Bar and music by the Singer, Songwriters, Storytellers Stratford.

The Community Of Lost Trades proved a focal point for artisans and crafters, and to celebrate this year's festival focus on the great Julius Caesar, there was a demonstration by Legio XVII Gallica - a Roman re-enactment group hailing from Metung.

Live bands performed throughout the day, adding to the relaxed festive atmosphere.

The popular Faire Day marks the mid-point of the two week annual festival, which has a host of activities to suit all tastes.
