From dress-up competitions, to riding a hobby horse and performance from the Phoenix Morris dancers, there was something for everyone at the Stratford Shakespeare Trust market day.
Trust secretary Jo Stallard says it was an enjoyable day.
"We're very excited that the weather was perfect for the event and it certainly brought all the people out. We've had a great response, it shows that there's an interest for a Shakespeare and Elizabethan focused market. All of the stall holders got involved. This event is a taster of what we'll be hosting next year. Next year's event will be even bigger."
Jo says there were three categories for the dress-up competition.
"Competitors had to dress up on the day. Children could enter the pixie and fairy categories and adults could enter the Elizabethan or Jacobean category. There were some lovely costumes. People could also register for the insult competition. They could also write a love note and tie it on to the Romeo and Juliet gate. The children could also play skittles and go in the draw to win a prize."
People could also write a sonnet and win a prize.
"We had some lovely entries."
