FAIRIES and elves are taking over a Hampshire village this weekend.

Hundreds of people have strapped on their wings and stocked up on magic dust for the New Forest Fairy Festival.

Burley Park has been transformed into a hive of magical activity, boasting activities including live bands, Morris dancers, storytelling, belly dancing, workshops, a healing area, puppet shows and interactive workshops.

The festival began today and returns tomorrow at 10am.
