Large crowds were drawn to a Wiltshire town centre for the annual summer carnival.

Calne Carnival, organised by the town council and sponsored by local firms Black Nova Designs and Deceuninck, was held on June 24.

Residents flocked to the 1950s and 1960s themed event and were greeted by singers, a stilt walker, Punch and Judy, morris dancers, a Samba band and even an assault course.

A range of stalls and games were also on offer while floats from Calne Bike Meet and Calne FC headlined a busy parade.
