Saffron Walden's Big Day Out was "incredible", its organisers have said.

Headlined by former Iron Maiden guitarist Dennis Stratton, Big Day Out saw fans flock to The Common for food, drink and live music.

The event was organised by the Saffron Walden Round Table (SWRT) on Saturday, July 17.

"We would like to thank SWRT members and event committee, as well as the volunteers and vendors.

"We would also like to thank the public for their support, attendance and generosity."
