Torrington came together once more to celebrate the colourful tradition of May Fair and crown the May queen.

Merry crowds gathered in Torringon Square once again today (Thursday) for the traditional annual May Fair celebrations.

May pole dancing, nostalgic wartime songs and an amusing dance routine from the cast of Trumpton topped the line up for the day.

Torrington Bluecoats pupil Neve Cox, 11, was crowed as May queen at midday, by crowner Carrie Lawrence-O'Shear, underneath the may pole.

She was accompanied by heralds Tyler Whittaker and Charlie Sears-Avery; and attendants Lilly-Mai Curley, Summer Pateman, Kaitlyn Grills, Mia Sampson, Kelsey Woodroffe, Bobbi Manning and Paige MacDonald Bale. Amelia Batten, also an attendant, unfortunately missed the event due to sickness.

The crowning was followed by traditional may pole dancing from pupils to the music of Torrington Town Band.

Throughout the day bumper crowds enjoyed dancing, singing from the Torrington Girls, and a dance routing from the Torrington Cavaliers.

Celebrations continued through this afternoon, and on Saturday the town will celebrate its carnival.
