Clevedon town centre was a feast of colour and a hub of noise at the weekend as the Hope In The Square event took place.

Live music, stalls selling beautiful gifts and exciting games proved to be a great draw as hundreds flocked to Queens Square on Saturday afternoon.

The free family event was again organised by Churches Together and sought to promote a community ethos within the town.

In addition to entertaining acts performing live, there was also food from around the world to tuck into and a bouncy castle to enjoy.

Among the most popular stalls was a cake-decorating booth, while the face-painting area unsurprisingly caught the eye of many of the younger visitors.

Art pieces were also sold and a doughnut stand meant nobody was in danger of going home feeling hungry.
