A larger-than-life model bull wove its way around Stamford’s streets yesterday (Saturday) as part of the town’s first Georgian Festival.

Thousands of people lined the streets to see the Bull Run, the highlight of the Stamford Georgian Festival programme. The bull, accompanied by pectacular puppet costumes of men on horseback and lions, as well as the Army’s Coldstream guards, made its way from Stamford Arts Centre, up Maiden Lane and along the High Street, which was filled with thousands of spectators.

It wound its way slowly through Red Lion Square and into Sheep Market, before finishing on The Meadows where the bull was set on fire.

South Kesteven District Council, which organised the festival, was delighted with the turnout.

Today (Sunday), there has been Cricket on the Meadows and a tea dance as part of the festival.
