Transition Town Nailsea put on the festival at the Ring O'Bells pub to celebrate the apple harvest and sustainable living.

The event was supported by Nailsea Cider - a small group of friends who make cider with apples from the town's orchards.

Children were given the chance to have a go at apple pressing with Nailsea Cider, before tasting the juice.

The Mendip Morris Dancers performed during the day along with The Cider House Rounders, The Happy Band, Barley Rye and The Acorns Youth Group.

Children's Hospice South West supplied some apples for the festival and visitors were able to learn more about the charity.

Members of Transition Town Nailsea gave advice on how to lead a more environmentally-friendly lifestyle.

It is the ninth apple day to be held in Nailsea and celebrations continued into the evening with The Somerset Paddies.
