Hundreds of people celebrated the long ties between England and Portugal.
Over the weekend, Great Yarmouth’s Drill House on York Road hosted the Windsor Treaty Festival.
The two-day festival was named after the 1386 treaty between the kingdoms of England and Portugal, the oldest diplomatic alliance in the world.
Organized by community arts organization The Reprezent Project with support from Out There Arts and Culture Events, the event featured Portuguese food and drink, music, bingo, games and activities for the enjoyment of children.
Ruben Cruz, Reprezent project manager, said: “The event went very well. We had around 500 people on Saturday and at least 150 on Sunday.
“We’ve had lots of comments from people saying they like celebrating different cultures.”
The event was funded by National Lottery funding, Mr. Cruz said he hoped the event could be held again next year.
