Oompa Loompas, clowns, cowboys and characters from the Wizard of Oz were just some of the impressive entries.

The best overall entry went to St Francis Primary School for its Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory entry – it also took the prize for the best junior group.

Tillie’s School of Performing Arts won the mixed age group with its Wizard Of Oz entry, while the WI won the over-18 category with 100 Years Of Votes For Women.

St Francis Preschool stole the show in the preschool class with its medieval costumes.
