THOUSANDS of people visited Walton Hall this weekend to enjoy a two-day food festival.

Visitors got to enjoy hot food stands, live music and artisan traders in the park.

And one of the main attractions was the newly opened Old Riding School, which is based through the heritage courtyard.

More than 40 traders gathered under the roof of the revamped building.

It will be used as an exhibition space throughout this year as part of the events programme.
