A POPULAR town festival burst to the scenes again raising money for two vital charities.

Thousands of people gathered in the town of Ulverston on Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19 to celebrate Another Fine Fest.

The weekend saw Ulverston erupt into a multicoloured feast of live music, DJs, circus, street theatre, live street art, window painting, yarnbombing, stand up comedy, spoken word, interactive workshops and a new world record attempt.

The twice world-record-breaking Another Fine Fest rocked the cobbles with the seventh instalment of the free multi-arts festival where revellers celebrate until the sun goes down.

This year the event was raising money for Ulverston Food Project and St Mary's Hospice.

The team at St Mary's Hospice took to the bustling streets of Ulverston with buckets to collect donations.

Heidi Bowron, St Mary’s Hospice Area Fundraiser:  “What a pleasure it was to attend Another Fine Fest at the weekend as they took St Mary's Hospice and Ulverston Food Waste Project as their two chosen charities. 

"How lovely it was to see so many people enjoying themselves in the sunshine and how honoured we were to be stopped so many times in the street by our local community thanking St Marys for all the work we do. 

"We truly live in a wonderful community.  A huge thank you to everyone involved in this event and also to our wonderful St Marys Volunteers ”
