A hardy crowd were not to be denied by the rain as hundreds enjoyed the Made In North Somerset Showcase at Court House Farm on Sunday.

Dozens of stalls offered up a wide selection of products, be it artisan culinary creations or high-quality handmade crafts and paintings – and musical performances from the Barnacle Buoys had the crowd singing along.

The event was orchestrated by North Somerset Council to show off the district’s finest independent traders.
