BARNSTAPLE is set to come alive with spectacular greenery on Saturday when a corner of the town pays its special annual homage to the summer season.
Organisers of Pilton's Green Man Day have put together another packed programme of events to draw in the crowds.
The action begins at 11am with a colourful and lively parade from the Square that is expected to arrive at Pilton House in time for the first of two Green Man pageants at 12noon.
The enactment will retell the encounter between the Pilton Prior and Green Man, an ancient symbol of nature and fertility often depicted in carvings in old churches, including the parish church of St Mary the Virgin in Pilton.

Live music takes place on four stages around the village, with other events at Pilton House, Pilton Hall and in the Rotary Gardens sure to keep festival-goers entertained throughout the day.
