It's been a great Festival so far with wonderful music of seemingly every genre, packed pubs, appreciative audiences and a real buzz about the place.

This is what's on offer on the final day of the Festival, Bank Holiday Monday, when there will be the added attraction of the Carnival with lots going on at the Playing Field too.

Check out the details on the Audlem Festival website – click on the link beneath the photos.

Landscape format photos are ideal – other shapes we will have to crop and edit.
