THE sixth Wrington Pageant took place in blazing sunshine on Saturday.

The centre of the village was overrun by a cast of colourful characters representing 600 years of village life.

Villagers depicting the medieval, Stuart, Georgian and Victorian eras paraded down Broad Street, while 21st century scenes were added for the first time by organiser and writer Echo Irving.

The pageant was just one of a series of events held in May celebrating the past and present of the village.

A family barn dance was organised by the 1st Burrington and Wrington Scouts and Guides on Saturday evening at the Memorial Hall in Silver Street, while the tower of All Saints Church was open throughout the day.

And across the weekend, a flower festival held by the Flower Guild and Friends in the church saw a variety of flower arrangements with a royal theme.
