More than 200 people took part in the festival at Nailsea School which saw competitors perform impressive pieces on their instruments.

There were classes for pianists, singing, music composition, speech and drama.

Judges watched 393 performances during the festival, with some talented participants entering more than one class.

Festival chairman Cynthia Dobson said: "It was a fantastic day and a huge thanks to the committee, volunteers, advertisers, Nailsea School, Nailsea Town Council and Nailsea Community Trust for all their support and help."

The committee is already looking forward to its next festival on November 21, 2020.
