BMX riding and tightrope walking went together at a summer holiday show in Nailsea.

The regular Wednesday fun at Crown Glass Shopping Centre continued in the town last week.

Bernie Bennett and Ayrton Jack were the entertainment acts on show.

Mr Jack’s Airbourne show in particular drew gasps from the crowd as he pulled off daredevil stunts while shoppers continued their daily errands.

Rob Stokell, the shopping centre’s manager, said the crowd enjoyed the performances.

He said: “It was exhilarating and fast paced and totally enjoyable.

“What was remarkable that it was enjoyed by everyone.
