Anyone visiting Eaton Park today could be forgiven for thinking they had accidently travelled to Southeast Asia, as from 10am, day two of the weekend festival which has transformed a corner of the park into a mini version of Thailand kicks off.

Opened with a traditional food offering to Buddhist monks, the event features music, dancing, sword fighting and Muay Thai boxing demonstrations as well as a host of food stalls serving Thai dishes and specialities.

The event runs from 10am -7pm, entry is £4 per day per adult with free entry for under 12s.
