CULTURES from all across Europe were brought to Devizes over the bank holiday weekend when the international street festival came to town.

Throughout the day there was an array of street style entertainment, live music on the small music stage and a festival fair on the Small Green.

Food from all corners of the continent was served at stalls and contemporary circus acts wowed the crowds.

Organiser Loz Samuels said: "The street fair was absolutely amazing and was the best turn out we have ever seen.

"The atmosphere was really great. We were really proud that this is our 20th year.

"We are a charity so we have a board of trustees and a small team of people behind the event.

"We are already in talks with acts for next year and we will be holding our winter festival near Christmas."

Fran Sheldon has been to the street fair several times and went this year with her family.

She said: "It's nice to see different cultures celebrated at an event like this, and it brings people out into the town which is great.

"It was a really great day and is good fun for everyone."

Some of the acts included Ockhams Razor, where the circus the performers, like surfers on a wild sea, ride a giant semi-circular see-saw made of wood and steel.

Also taking to the stage was Johnny Macaulay, an internationally known man who brought street magic to life.

The event is organised by Devizes Outdoor Celebratory Arts every year, who present professional outdoor arts experiences, creating participatory opportunities working with local, national and international artists. Their other events in the town include Colour Rush, originating from the Indian festival of Holi or the Festival of Colour and involves Colour runs, rushes and parties.
