In photos: Big crowds flock to Burnham's Dance On The Beach

Dozens of dancers attracted big crowds to Burnham-On-Sea's seafront on Saturday (July 17th) when a day-long special fundraising event was held in aid of a cancer charity.

'Dance On The Beach' was held on the seafront outside the Bay View Cafe after the high tide and windy weather caused a late change of location from the beach.

The event was held on a specially-built outdoor stage and included a fun-filled line-up of dance acts from the talented members of Highbridge's Lucy Gunter Dance and Theatre Arts Centre in aid of Somerset Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

"A large cast from five years old upwards performed throughout the day, all in aid of a great cause," principal Lucy Gunter told

"There were street dance crews, boys dance groups, ballet, modern dance, tap dance, jive, pop songs and musicals."

She added that moving the stage from the beach onto the seafront had helped swell the crowds of spectators even more.

Christine Piper from Somerset Breakthrough added: "It was a really fun event and a good sum is bound to have been raised."

The charity collected donations and handed out breast cancer awareness leaflets throughout the day.
