Families enjoyed a host of creative activities in a town's park at the weekend.

The annual Art in the Park event at Brough Park, Leek, took place over Saturday and Sunday.

Although it was a fairly wet weekend, hundreds of people still turned out to support the event which showcases a host of local creative talent.

Co-organiser Gareth Knapper, Open Spaces Officer at Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, said: "Saturday was a lot busier than Sunday, but we are still really pleased at how well the event is supported despite the wet weather."

Tyra Till, a member of the Leek & District Guild of Spinners, Dyers and Weavers, added: "I think the rain did put some people off but we still had lots of support."

Youngsters were able to enjoy having their faces painted as well as taking part in a variety of craft activities including those organised by the Leek-based organisation of Borderland Voices.

There were lots of stalls for people to browse including: photography, glass ware, books, home-made cards and jewellery, as well as a display of the history of Brough Park.

There was also live music during the weekend from the Caldon Canal Stompers.
