Organisers of The Ritz Social Club in Burnham hailed their event a huge success, which saw hundreds attend on its opening night.

Around 100 musicians performed and around 15 ales and some ciders were available for people to try at the get-together, which was held from Friday to Monday.

The festival is the ninth hosted by the club, in Victoria Street, and the club would like to thank the 1,500 people who made it possible to host the gathering.

Paul Hale said: "The festival went extremely well.

"It was really busy when the event kick-started, which saw more than 200 people attend on Friday night.

"We would like to thank the musicians who took part over the course of the weekend and to anyone who has helped us out on the real-ale bar.

"It will definitely return next year for its 10th anniversary."
