Swaffham’s annual Visual Arts Festival opened with a gala performance of the award-winning play Art at the nearby Westacre Theatre on Saturday night.

A series of events will be taking place around the town over the next few weeks as part of the showcase, which is organised by the town’s Rotary Club.

The festival, which is now in its 22nd year, has raised tens of thousands of pounds for good causes during its history.
