Pensioners and artists prepare for Highbridge sea-themed art festival

Residents at nursing homes in Burnham-On-Sea and Brent Knoll have been working with local artists this week to make sea creatures for an arts festival taking place on Saturday (July 14th).

Residents of Holywell Nursing Home in Brent Knoll and Burnham's Beaufort House have been showing their artistic expertise for the Highbridge and Burnham Artists Arts Festival, 'Denizens of the Deep', which takes place on Saturday 14th July from 10am to 4pm in Highbridge's Apex Park.

Highbridge and Burnham Artists (HaBA) is also working in schools, youth clubs and in their own studios to make a number of glorious sea creatures for a sculpture trail at the event.

"The sculpture trail forms just part of the annual summer festival, which is now in its fifth year," a spokesman told

She added that visitors will also be able to have a go at making their own sea creatures in the show's marquee where free art activities will be available. There will be lots of other art-related activities and live music.
