Thousands of people enjoyed five days of top blues music in Mid Norfolk.
The Dereham Blues Festival has quickly grown into not only one of the town's highlights of the year, but also for music lovers across the country.
Festival chairman and organiser Harry Collins said it had been a wonderful event, with more than 50 musicians performing across 13 of the town's venues - and thousands of people in attendance.
He said: "Hamilton Loomis got things off to a fantasasic start on the opening night. He was stunning."
The festival launched a new website this year where the full programme was available to view, while a CD entitled Dereham Blues Volume 1 - featuring many of the bands that performed - was on sale during the festival and from the website.
Dereham Blues Festival came to a close yesterday, July 14. For more information on the event, visit www.derehambluesfestival.org.uk.
