More than a thousand people descended on Mayflower Park to see a host of the south-east Asian country’s colourful cultural offerings.

The two-day event, which was organised by the Southampton Thai Festival Group, kicked off in style with a procession that featured colourful traditional Thai costumes.

Crowds were entertained by a variety of displays and activities including boxing matches, traditional dancing, cookery demonstrations, massages and a range of Thai cuisine.
