REVELLERS enjoyed the first Shepley Spring Festival over the weekend.
The event took place on three stages set up in the grounds of Shepley Cricket Club.
More than 100 local, national and international artists took part.
Friday night's entertainment in the concert marquee was headlined by folk legend Roy Bailey, who is also the festival patron.
In the dance tent Bedlam entertained the crowds. The foursome were all educated in the area. Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter Dan McKinnon took centre stage at the acoustic cafe in St Paul's Church Hall.
John Tams and Barry Coope, from Derbyshire, played the marquee on Saturday night, followed by jazz and folk fusion group Parallelogram.
Yesterday saw legendary folk musicians Martin Carthy and Norma Waterson headline.
Village pubs the Farmer's Boy and Black Bull also hosted musicians and singers' sessions and there was a parade on Saturday afternoon.
The festival even took to the railways, with musicians and dancers entertaining passengers.
Schools in Shepley, Shelley, Highburton and Kirkburton showcased their traditional music and dance talents on Saturday while the students from Scissett Middle School played in yesterday's lunchtime family ceilidh.
Cricket club vice-chairman and secretary Ian Watkinson said: "It's been an absolutely fantastic occasion. What stood out was the atmosphere, the way the musicians mixed with people in the bar after their performances."
And Mr Watkinson thinks hosting the event put his club on the map.
He added that the festival had won him over to folk music.
