Sir Terry Pratchett fans celebrate Wincanton Hogswatch weekend
Fantasy fans travelled from far and wide to Wincanton at the weekend as the town celebrated its unique link with Sir Terry Pratchett.
The town welcomed hundreds of visitors as part of the three-day annual Hogswatch celebrations.
An army of Pratchett fans joined local dignitaries in celebrating the tenth anniversary since Wincanton was twinned with fictional Discworld city Ankh-Morpork.
A civic ceremony was held in the town hall on Saturday to mark the milestone.

Despite Saturday's scheduled grand parade from the Discworld Emporium to Market Square falling victim to the foul weather, organisers were delighted to see that "the spirit of the occasion was not dampened".
Reb Voyce, who works at the Discworld Emporium, said: "We had so many new people travelling into the town from all over Europe.
"It's a truly unique event to celebrate a unique link that Wincanton has with Discworld."
This year's event raised a total of £2,977 for The Research Institute for the Care of Older People through a charity auction and donations.
