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!
"We would really like Summer Solstice Sundown to be fully booked.
"All the proceeds go towards the mayor's charities."

Cllr Marcus said a smaller event this year could lead to bigger plans in the future.
