Updated, August 25, 4.30pm: Wealden District Council has updated the numbers attending to more than 6,000.
Wealden’s second Food and Wine Festival was held at Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum at Halland, near Uckfield.
The two-day event at the weekend was attended by more than 5,500 people.
The crowds on Saturday enjoyed glorious sunshine and Sunday morning’s rain failed to dampen everyone’s enthusiasm.
The event was opened on Saturday by Wealden MP Nus Ghani who praised the important contribution local food producers make to the Wealden economy.
There were 40 stands selling local produce as well as cookery demonstrations, live music, wine talks, street entertainment, storytelling, craft stalls and guided walks.
Visitors were also able to visit Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum and enjoy its unique collection of cars, motorcycles and cycles, spanning over 100 years, as well as some 2,500 birds.
Tony O’Malley, a founder member of 70s British soul funk band Kokomo, performed at a special Jazz and Funk Breakfast on Sunday .
Hellingly Scouts helped with the car parking and raised £836.
