Hundreds of performers showcased their talent at Nailsea Festival of Music (NFOM) on Saturday.
There were 90 classes which gave people the chance to show off their singing skills and musical abilities.
Classes were also held for choirs and speech and drama performances.
The event was held at Nailsea School and spectators and judges watched 482 performances during the day.
Beverley Kelly, from NFOM, said: “We had entries in 90 classes and 372 different individuals entered in singing, choirs, piano, speech and drama.
“There was one mark of 95 and two others of 90, all of which indicated outstanding performances. There were also 49 performances which gained marks of 87-89 which indicated performances of distinction.”
It costs £6,000 to put on the festival and George Dobson was selling his book, Yet More Observational Odes, to raise money for the event.
