In photos: Big crowds flock to 'best ever' Burnham-On-Sea FolkFest

Music fans have crowded into Burnham-On-Sea's streets, pubs and the Manor Gardens over the weekend when dozens of live music and dance acts performed during the town's annual FolkFest.

A huge crowd filled the Manor Gardens on Sunday for the big finale - six hours of entertainment from Sam Patten, The Sea Kings, Thirsty Jenny, Triple Threat and Leatherat.

Organisers said the tenth annual four-day event has been the 'best yet' with big crowds, boosted by mild, sunny weather.

Ten hours of live music from scores of performers was held on Saturday at each venue.

In addition to live music, there were also street entertainers including human statues and stilt walkers, children's activities, dancers, a craft market and free workshops.

Stand-out acts on Saturday included Calico Jack, pictured, Jack Ratts, Darren Hodge, The Drystones, The Leylines, Bruise, Rosie Eade, FOS Brothers, Fly Yeti Fly, Wildwood Kin, The Thatchers, Mac Seka and Steve Turner.

A new venue for Folkfest was Poets Corner at the Crafty Teacup cafe

The festival officially opened on Friday at The Princess with a concert by up-and-coming youngsters Coco & The Butterfields, watched by an impressed audience
