A fledgling music festival in Dunmow has nearly sold out.
Summer Solstice Sundown will make its debut on the Great Dunmow Recreation Ground on Saturday, June 19.
With little more than a week left until the stage is set, fewer than 10 out of 86 Covid-safe 'pods' are left to book.
Town councillor Emma Marcus is one of the event's organisers.
Cllr Marcus said: "I'm so grateful to be doing something completely different that we haven't been able to do for so long!

"All the proceeds go towards the mayor's charities."
