SLIDESHOW: Old-fashioned fun at Rotherham festival

Waiting for Video...

Fun and games with a vintage twist were the order of the day at a festival in South Yorkshire.

The Anston Festival Day offered live music, a picnic, dance demonstrations and children’s activities, all for free and with a 1940s and ’50s theme.

Children enjoyed a bouncy castle and slide, as well as practising their football skills on an inflatable pitch manned by Rotherham United FC staff.

Visitors browsed charity stalls, took tea in the parish hall and got the chance to admire a display of vintage vehicles. Volunteers led tours of Anston Stones Wood, while jive band The Swing Commanders headlined the event.
