Ten days of live music, outdoor theatre and creative installations put the art beat into Bakewell.

The annual spectacular was opened by Emmerdale actress Liz Estensen whose son, James Allen, held his first solo exhibition at Bakewell Arts Festival.

Musicians from as far away as Liverpool entertained crowds who flocked to the town.
