Workington was painted red back in 2012 for a festival with entertainment for all.

There was a carnival atmosphere in the town as Paint The Town Red took over the streets and parks with big names mixing in with local entertainers for a fun event.

Bands, theatre groups, a market and cars were all on display with an owl and stunt cars also wowing youngsters.

Thousands attended the festival, which took place in the town centre and in Curwen Park and Vulcan Park.

The first Paint The Town Red happened in 2008 when star of the Royle Family Ricky Tomlinson was the star and then in 2012 it was held on a larger scale.

We have looked back in our archive to find snaps of the 2012 event so see if you can recognise any familiar faces.
