Crowds descended upon Alexandra Gardens in Windsor for The Firestation's Big Picnic.

Bands and musicians took to the stage to keep visitors entertained throughout the afternoon at the free event run by the St Leonard's Road arts centre.

The gardens, in Goswell Road, had a festival feel with colourful bunting, live music and families picnicking on the grass in front of the stage.

There was also stand-up comedy from Firestation regular, Will Franken, fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe, where his new show The Stuff They Put in Sleep received five-star reviews.

"It has been really good," said The Firestation's general manager Pete Bonnici.

"Nice turn out and the weather has been as kind as it could have been."

Pete added they had a mix of bands including folk groups and some young musicians.

The bouncy castle proved as popular as ever at the family friendly day and there was also a rodeo bull, tasty treats from Eton Fudge, a bar and a number of charity stalls.

A total of £100 was raised for Twyford-based family bereavement and sickness support charity Daisy's Dream from a tombola.

The Big Picnic was held on Saturday.
