HATFIELD House hosted the annual Folk by the Oak music festival at the weekend.

Following the previous night’s explosive Battle Proms classical concert, it was a change of pace on Sunday afternoon, with the family-friendly folk festival returning to Hatfield Park for a fifth time.

And, after weeks of rain, the sun shone, much to the delight of the thousands of festival-goers.

The audience enjoyed sets by the likes of Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo, Chris Wood and Scottish group Breabach.

The line-up also included Cara Dillon and Nancy Kerr & James Fagan.

The day-long festival was rounded off by The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain and headliners Show of Hands.
