It’s the way they tell ‘em: what do you think of these jokes?

Laughs - and a few good-natured groans - added to the atmosphere of the town centre on Thursday as children told a selection of jokes.

They were taking part in Rugby Reads, part of the Festival of Culture. Rugby Reads has involved youngsters taking part in a range of literary events, including a gathering of stories from schools, to be collated into a book.

Rugby Festival of Culture runs until July 14.
