A music and arts festival is set to return to a Somerset town this weekend.

BOSFest is back for a second year at various venues across Burnham-on-Sea tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday.

Musicians, comedians and poets will perform at the Princess Theatre, The Ritz, The Victoria Hotel and Manor Gardens.

A new addition to the free event this year will be the community stage outside the Princess Theatre, in Princess Street, where dancing troupes and drummers will perform across the weekend.

Authors including Sonny Topham, Francis Evesham and Becky Hewlitt will also read to visitors in the library.

Tanya Dyer, chairman of BOSfest, said: “We are really excited to be welcoming this myriad of amazing performing talent to Burnham and also having the opportunity to showcase our own homegrown 
talent (from) here in Burnham, Highbridge and the surrounding areas.”
