Crowds of visitors enjoyed live music, admired classic cars and could win tombola prizes at the event in Burnham on Saturday.

The town's Lighthouse Inn, in Highbridge Road, organised the event in aid of Dorset And Somerset Air Ambulance Charity.

Singers including Mia, Becky, Casey and Elswood made an appearance, and Somerset band VooDoo Seven played for the first time at the fundraiser.

Visitors could also try out activities including hook a duck, get their face painted and watch a children's boxing demonstration.

People could also play skittles, battle in a Nerf gun range and eat tasty barbecue food and drink at the event's bar.

The fun day was supported by Highbridge business Jays Logistics.
