The annual fun day is organised and run by Mildenhall Parish Council for the parish’s residents.

This year’s event was a bigger affair than 2014’s, with activities including a motion theatre simulator, a climbing wall, a rodeo bull and a fun house, as well as vintage vehicles and circus skills.

The Kimberley Ann Theatre School (KATS) reenacted a show they performed at the Royal Albert Hall in April.

Music acts included headliners Thy Last Drop, who recently performed at the first Bury Folk Festival, Once Awake and Staycations.

Groups including Mildenhall Cycling Club, the Bunbury Players, Leading Lives and the Twinning Assocation also attended.

Mandy Maguire, Mildenhall Parish Council clerk, said: “It was great to see so many people, and the weather was very good for us.

“It is something the parish council does for the residents. It is not about profit, it is about giving something back to the parish.

“When you see an event that goes so well and is so well attended, it makes all the hard work worthwhile.”

“The staff were absolutely amazing. They worked their socks off up to the event and on the day.

“We had a lot more activities this year and great fun was had by all.”
