A field belonging to a popular South Yorkshire farm has been transformed into a huge music festival.

Hundreds of people are enjoying the Underneath The Stars Festival at Cannon Hall Farm, at Cawthorne near Barnsley.

The family friendly festival features two huge tents where a variety of artists are performing over the weekend including songwriter and guitarist Richard Thompson and folk musician Kate Rusby.

There is also a host of other attractions including fairground rides and activities for children.

Organiser Joe Rusby said the festival was the result of two years work.

“We wanted to create a mixture between a music festival and a summer fair and I think we’ve done that,” he added.

The festival runs until tomorrow evening.
