Picture gallery: Clevedon Flower Show and Festival

MORE than 5,000 visitors went along to the annual Clevedon Flower Show and Festival to enjoy entertainment, displays and live music.

A total of 171 people also entered the 300 classes put on for horticulture, crafts, domestic and children’s items.

On Saturday and Sunday, the Salthouse Fields were awash with people, stalls and marquees as the event, organised by Clevedon and District Horticultural Society, got underway.

Among those who won prizes during the show were Sian Davis who spent more than four weeks preparing her crochet exhibit, for which she won the award for the best exhibit excluding horticultural classes.

Alan Baker was awarded for his floral displays, Mike Sheppard won the prize for the best exhibit in show for his roses, Mark Perry was awarded for his vegetables and John Silverthorne also received a trophy for achieving the most points in show.

Throughout the event, live music was provided by tribute acts and marching bands. Displays were put on by members of the Harley Davidson Motorcycle Club and Bristol Harlequins Majorettes. A dog show on Sunday also proved very popular.
