A variety of sports, accessible dance classes and music sessions were on offer at the Festival of Life and Living at the weekend.
The event was organised by the West of England Centre for Inclusive Living (WECIL) to enable people with physical and learning disabilities to find out what opportunities are available for them in the area and how they can access more support.
Visitors were able to try out a number of different activities including seated yoga, tai chi and boccia.
People on Saturday were also able to make their own music and take the recording home with them.
Experts offered advice on equipment aimed at making practical tasks easier.
The fun event was held at Portishead Youth Centre, in Harbour Road.
WECIL is run by disabled people to help those with physical impairments, mental health problems, learning disabilities and long-term health conditions.
