Photos: Burnham's Easter Day fundraiser helps Hillview Carnival Club

A fundraising 'super-gig' helped to raise hundreds of pounds for Burnham-On-Sea's Hillview Carnival Club on Easter Sunday.

Six acts played more than ten hours of non-stop live music during the special event at The Princess Theatre, organised by the team behind Burnham's Folkfest music festival.

Hundreds of people attended Sunday's event to raise cash for the town's Hillview Carnival Club, some of whom are pictured on the right.

The event got underway at 2pm with Bouncing Biscuit, before Chiller took to the stage, followed by Big Joe Bone, Vermin, Ish Kabbible and finished with the impressve Leylines.

Hillview Chairman Duncan Britton told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Our thanks go to everyone who attended - there was a super atmosphere with plenty of support from the locals. We also thank the Folkfest team, with a special mention to Dom Wills and Graham Cook - everyone at Hillview is very grateful for the backing."

Folkfest Chairman Dom Wills said he was pleased with how the event had gone and added that a further event will be held at The Princess on September 3rd for Hillview Carnival Club. He added: "Though Folkfest is unlikely to ever happen again, the committee maintains its commitment to the promotion of live music in Burnham."

Burnham-On-Sea.com reported here last year that FolkFest had been axed due to a pressure on resources.
