Hares and Humphry Repton were the themes of this year’s Aylsham Big Lunch, which drew around 15pc of the town’s population.
Nearly 900 people packed into the Market Place on Sunday, July 1 to enjoy lunch, meet friends and dance to music by local band Norfolk Trail.
The lunch was one of the final events marking the 200th anniversary of the death of the renowned landscape gardener Humphry Repton who is buried in Aylsham Parish Church.
There were also plenty of roses about to celebrate the arrival of Humphry Hare in Aylsham - a sculpture part of this year’s GoGoHares trail.
Eileen Springall, chair of Aylsham Events Committee, said: “Despite recent changes and continued growth Aylsham still has a strong community heart and the town council are happy to recognize this by holding this event.
“I’d particularly like to thank all the volunteers who have helped make this event possible”.
