MORE than £1,000 was raised toward a popular Clevedon event during a live music extravaganza on Saturday.

Winterfest took place at Campbell’s Landing pub in The Beach with 17 bands playing between noon and midnight.

It was organised by the same people who organise the soundstage for the Clevedon Marine Lake Festival, which is held every September at the town’s seafront and was started by voluntary group, MARLENS.

MARLENS president Joe Norman said: “This was a wonderful event for the people of Clevedon to start the 2013 music year.

“The talent available in and around North Somerset is truly amazing and we thank all 17 bands, organisers and the sound engineers for their generous support.
