Crowds of music fans descended on a Clevedon pub at the weekend for the most successful Winterfest in its history.

The annual indoor music festival was held at The Salthouse, with 16 bands and artists taking to two stages to entertain the crowd.

The day-long event saw the music continue well into the night as revellers danced away to a variety of genres.

Medieval-inspired Maidenhair got the party started with their acoustic folk sounds while Frankie Spain and the Inquisition Position brought the curtain down with their electrifying guitar riffs and vocals.

A spokesman said: “Winterfest had the largest audience turnout so far and was a success for the charity also.

“Every band played fabulous sets and the atmosphere in the pub was brilliant, if a little warm by the end of the evening.”
