Sheep, tractors and lots of colourful displays of food and flowers attracted thousands of visitors to the annual Cathedral Harvest Festival celebration.

Weekend-long festivities started with a harvest supper in the Lady Chapel on Friday (7) evening.

Then on Saturday and Sunday the cathedral was open to all to enjoy the exhibition which included live sheep and wool spinning.

Among the many floral and produce displays was also a vintage tractor and lots more.

The event was organised jointly by the cathedral and the NFU and this year’s theme as ‘A Celebration of Great British Food’.
