THOUSANDS of people flocked to this year's 35th festival of Living Crafts at Hatfield House from Thursday until Sunday.

Getting off to a rather dreary wet start, the weather picked up during the weekend and visitors enjoyed the hundreds of stalls on display.

Guests also enjoyed Morris dancing, a brass band and a Punch and Judy show.
