Revellers at Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival enjoyed a bouncing night of rock covers as the sun went down.

Helter Skelter headlined the Festival at Dusk on Saturday, topping the bill at an evening of live music that accompanied the food stalls and bars of the four-day event.

The bands first took to the stage on Thursday evening, with a set from Little and Often, before Retrofire, LewRey, Fiery Biscuits and Storm entertained the crowds on Friday night.

On Saturday, the Awesome School Choir of Rock and Man in the Street performed before Huddersfield band Helter Skelter took to the stage.

Lead singer Craig Mitchell said there was around 15,000 people in the audience.

"It was marvellous," he said. "It was even better than last year, it was incredible.

"We 'rock up' everything and get everybody bouncing. Everybody jumped from start to finish."

This year was the third year Helter Skelter had performed at the festival, and they hope to return next year.

Craig said: "Our sole intention was to whip Huddersfield into a frenzy, that's our motto!"
