This is the 19th year the festival has been held and over the weekend families are able to follow a trail which loops around the village.

As well as the trail, festival-goers can enjoy local bands and artists, craft stalls and circus skills workshops.

The festival raises money for various charity and community projects based in and around the area. They have raised over £35,000 over the years.

This year they are aiming to raise over £2,500 for Chippenham-based charity Doorway which supports those who are homeless and vulnerable.
