Villagers celebrated the long-awaited return of Long Ashton Beer and Cider Festival.
More than 200 people attended and enjoyed locally produced beers, ciders, food and live music.
The event raised is held to raise money for the community centre, and revellers helped to raise £2,000 for the cause this year.
Clive Donoghue said: "The eighth Long Ashton Beer & Cider Festival, revived to much acclaim after a forced absence last year, took place on Saturday and was a huge success with villagers joining together to raise over £2,000 for the community centre. Joyful faces were in abundance as people were delighted to come together once again to meet and socialise."
Giles Hughes, Everton Hartley, Medicine Creek and Grizzly & the Bear performed at the event, and the food was provided by the Market Kitchen.
The money will go the community centre, in Keedwell Hill, which provides facilities for people of all ages in the village.
