Thousands flooded into Lydiard Park over the weekend to enjoy the three-day Pimms in the Park event to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers danced to live music and excited children took pictures with the Batmobile on display.

Organisers Debra Collins and Graham Stobbs estimated that around 30,000 people came through the gates to enjoy the fun-packed weekend which included a tombola, a treasure hunt and various arts and craft stalls.

Hundreds of pizzas were consumed as Domino's sponsored the event - and sweet treats were aplenty as local businesses set up stalls.

Graham said:"You've got those who want to celebrate the Queen but also those who just want to get out into the community.

"We've been locked up for two years. We haven't seen a disappointed face."

Debra added: "It's been absolutely rammed and even when the weather turned on Friday, there were a lot of hardcore fans that stayed and saw the night out.

Swindon Advertiser:

"Last year we were all locked inside. What a difference a year's made. People are setting out their camping chairs and are just staying here all day."

The pair also organise MFor Festival in Lydiard Park and described this weekend's events as a "mini MFor to represent what we're about" ahead of the July event.
