Festival On The Quay was held at the marina on Saturday, as dozens of people enjoyed an afternoon of entertainment.

Friends shared a pint or two before singing and dancing along to live music at the party, which was hosted by Hall & Woodhouse.

Spencer Flay was first to take to the stage, followed up by Billy Driscoll. Rockett88 warmed the crowd up as the evening wore on, and Chess Club Heroes finished the night in style.

There were also lots of family activities to keep children entertained.

A dog show proved to be popular with animal lovers, with the top pooches winning prizes.

In addition to providing an evening of summertime fun, the event also raised vital funds for the RNLI and Great Western Air Ambulance.
