Thousands of people turned out for the three-day Sunflowerfest at Tubby’s Farm, Hillsborough, over the weekend from Friday 27 July to Monday 30 July.

NIWater gve out over 600 reusable water bottles and chatted to campers and visitors about refilling their bottles from the tap, instead of buying a plastic bottle of water.

Every bottle refilled means one less bottle of plastic potentially ending up in our oceans, NI Water say.

Visitors to the festival could fill their bottles for free from several refill taps across the site and keep themselves hydrated as the music played.
