Welshpool Festival celebrates with cowboy hats
Hundreds of people donned their finest cowboy attire for Welshpool's annual country and western festival.

Music fans headed to Powis Castle for the event, with most choosing to wear cowboy hats and boots to fit in with the theme, while also protecting themselves from the wet weather, The Shropshire Star reports.

An array of music acts featured during the festival, including The Byrnes, Darren Busby, Knoxville Highway Band, Little Rock, Gary Perkins, Magill and Muddy Boots.

Boat trips on the Montgomery Canal also took place, while trade stands and refreshments helped to ensure visitors were well entertained.

All proceeds were given to the Heulwen Trust, which provides narrowboat trips on the canal for disabled people and those suffering from serious illnesses.

Rozanne Corfield, vice-chairman of the trust, told the newspaper: "It was a lovely show and everyone seemed to have a great time.

"We made a profit like we do always… I would say more than a thousand people turned up," she claimed over the three-day weekend event.
