Hundreds of people enjoyed sipping beers and ciders while listening to live music at one of Nailsea's most popular events.
Nailsea and Backwell Beer and Cider Festival took place at the weekend and around 8,000 people popped in to take part in the festivities.
The event was held at Nailsea and Backwell Rugby Club and 160 beers and ciders were available to sample.
Organisers also added a gin festival to the programme this year, which proved extremely popular with revellers.
Festival chairman Paul Turner said: “It was a brilliant weekend. Everyone enjoyed it.
“I would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who did anything for us. They are too numerous too mention but we are hugely grateful.”
The three-day event began on Friday and included music from local bands, a kids’ village, stalls and food outlets.
Proceeds from the festival will go to Children’s Hospice South West.
