Hosted near The Big Sheep at Abbotsham on Saturday, the crowd was treated to live music from bands including The Hoosiers, Noble Jacks, Right Said Fred and The Wurzels, who headlined the first Pigstock five years ago.

Then on Sunday it was across to the attraction, with the theme park hosting a Pigstock comedy festival, acoustic sessions from local bands and singers including Sam Dowden and Captal.

Pigstock organiser Matt Samuel, said: “It has been a fantastic weekend and I would like to thank everyone for making it such a Pigstock classic!

“Moving to a new location this year and growing in size was a big challenge for us but it all came together wonderfully.

“As well as our lovely local Pigstockers, we had festival goers and families from around the country which was great for us and also North Devon which delivered on the day with the weather. We look forward to the next.”
