Organisers’ spokesman Matthew Willey said: “We pride ourselves on always having a full complement of puzzles on display although we can only ever have just over 200 on display.

“The festival is a popular event every year and it is particularly pleasing to see the pleasure jigsaws bring to youngsters as well as adults.

“When we started the event, a few people said to us that, with new technology, jigsaws were rather old-fashioned but they are as popular as ever.”

The festival runs up to and including Saturday from 10am to 4pm each day, with admission £2 for adults, including a free drink, and entry free for primary school age children.
