Cosplay and sci-fi fans gathered at a castle in the Cotswold countryside for a weekend of music and fantasy related shows.

Revellers dressed up in all types of genres at the Fantasy Forest Festival at Sudeley Castle, Gloucestershire.

Some dressed as fairies, goths and even an executioner at the festival, which featured competitions, workshops and trading stalls. 

A costume competition took place on Saturday afternoon, which had a cash prize of £250 for best in show. Visitors could also win a cash prize of £100 for best costume, among other awards.     

The festival took place at the ’12th century built’ Sudeley Castle, Gloucestershire. It included the Wicker Man event which sees a wicker-made effigy of a man (used to symbolise the past) set on fire to welcome a new beginning.

Visitors could even camp out under the stars out in the Cotswolds countryside. One couple, Mand and Minty, even had their wedding at the festival.
